Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela has been banned by UEFA for 10 matches for racist behaviour.

Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara claimed he'd been racially abused by Kudela during a Europa League match between the sides last month.

Kudela was seen whispering into Kamara's ear towards the end of the game at Ibrox.

Kudela was provisionally suspended for one match as UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings over the clash in the game; which the Czech side won 2-0 to progress to the next round.

This suspension was served during their 1-1 quarter-final first leg draw with Arsenal at the Emirates on 8 April.

A statement from UEFA on Wednesday afternoon in relation to the investigation read:

Following an investigation conducted by a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector regarding the incidents that occurred during the 2020/21 UEFA Europa League Round of 16 second leg match between Rangers FC and SK Slavia Praha on 18 March 2021, and the subsequent proceedings opened against Mr. Ondřej Kúdela and Mr. Glen Kamara, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has taken the following decisions:

To suspend SK Slavia Praha player, Mr. Ondřej Kúdela, for the next ten (10) UEFA club and representative team competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible to play, for racist behaviour, which includes the one-match provisional suspension served by the player during SK Slavia Praha’s 2020/21 UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg match against Arsenal FC on 8 April 2021.

To suspend Rangers FC player, Mr. Glen Kamara, for three (3) UEFA club competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible to play, for assaulting another player.
