The laywer of Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has slammed the racist abuse his client received from Sparta Prague fans when the sides met in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
The match held at the Letna Stadium was originally meant to be behind closed doors after there were alleged racist remarks made towards Monaco's Aurelius Tchouameni last season.
Instead UEFA permitted 10,000 schoolchildren under-14 to attend the game as long as they were supervised but the boos towards 25-year-old Kamara were still as vociferous as ever.
The Rangers midfielder was constantly jeered and whistled at by Sparta Prague fans with the loudest cheer of the night coming at his dismisal in the 74th-minute for a second bookable offence.
Now Kamara's laywer, Aamer Anwar, has jumped to his client's defence taking to Twitter, slamming the actions of those supporters that chose to boo him:
"I had hoped when I heard of the stadium closure of Sparta Prague that both Glen and other black players wouldn’t have to put up with any abuse or racism and could just get on with playing football," said Mr Anwar.
"But this evening should be an embarrassment for the Czech side that, despite their fans being banned, it still made little difference that the stadium was filled with 10,000 schoolchildren.

"A huge proportion of those children booed Glen’s every touch of the ball along with every other black player for Rangers.
"Tonight shows yet again that Prague has a serious problem with racism & as usual UEFA is nowhere to be seen.
"Glen and the Rangers players have shown total class, but no player should have to face this at their work and on the European stage."
