Slavia Prague have claimed their fans have received DEATH THREATS following their reaction to the alleged racist abuse suffered by Rangers' Glen Kamara.

The Ibrox midfielder was allegedly branded a "f***ing monkey" by Ondrej Kudela on the pitch during the two sides' Europa League clash last week. The Czech club, however, vehemently deny the accusations and have blasted Gers for their treatment after the game where they claim their players were prevented from entering their dressing room.

They also claim Kudela was punched by Kamara and they have since lodged an official criminal complaint. Governing body UEFA have also since revealed they will launch an investigation into proceedings from Thursday evening, and Slavia Prague have confirmed they will respect the findings.

In a statement via social media, however, they urged their own supporters not to send any more racist messages to Ibrox personnel after a banner was unfurled by ultras branding Kamara a "n*****" in a sickening image. Fans also abused Kemar Roofe after the game with more racist taunts.

But they claim 'death threats' were posted to some of their fans following the clash.

The statement read: "Everything that happened in Glasgow is now examined by UEFA and - on our initiative - by Scottish police. We believe everything will be investigated and we will respect the decision. If the outcome warrants it, we will act. 

We hope the situation will not escalate further and we will know the outcome of the investigation soon. We appeal to our fans to restrain from any inappropriate statements, and we believe that Rangers FC will do the same. It is the only possible way. 

"There will be no further comment from the club as we do not consider appropriate to engage in the exchange of views on social media where - among other things - death threats to our supporters were published."
