Slavia Prague goalkeeper Premsyl Kovar last night appeared to confirm his teammate Ondrej Kudela DID racially abuse Glen Kamara, calling him a 'f***ing monkey' during Thursday night's Europa League clash.

The stopper revealed in a telling audio message that the Czech defender abused Rangers' Kamara, sparking a furious exchange both on the pitch and then in the tunnel after the game.

Kudela, in a recording posted on social media, said: "We were kept on the field for an hour, man, because because of Kudy. He told a man that he was a f***ing monkey, man."

The bombshell recording came, Kovar says, after Gers had kept Slavia Prague's players out of the changing rooms as arguments and discussions over the allegations went on between Steven Gerrard and officials from the Czech outfit.

Kovar, speaking to the press about the voice note, BACKTRACKED, however, saying that he does NOT find his teammate Kudela to be a racist. He added: "I haven't heard him from Ondra personally, and Ondra denies him even in friendly conversations between us, which I believe in". The sub goalie then also seemed to back-track and claim the 'racism' allegations were false. 

"Those words are just false accusations on the part of the player," added Kovar. "In the recording, I described in particular this incredible situation, which the organisers defended with this false statement."

Slavia Prague have vehemently denied any racism claims and backed their player Kudela ever since the game. They released a statement in the following days to support their defender as well as make claims that Gers were too aggressive during the 90 minutes. They also claim Glen Kamara PUNCHED Kudela and insisted they would lodge an official criminal complaint.

The statement read: "Slavia resolutely denies the disgusting accusation of one of the team captains Ondřej Kúdela of racist behaviour. Already the founders of our club gave us crest where white colour means “the purity of the idea of sports and fair contest where the rival is not our enemy, but respected opponent.” Today, Slavia is an international club based on respect for our opponents and mutual respect of all people and cultures.

"After one of the brutal fouls, Ondřej Kúdela spoke to one of the Rangers players. “I told him ‘You f***ing guy’. It was said in emotions, but I absolutely deny there was anything racist in those words,” Kúdela stated.

"Slavia players faced an unprecedentedly malicious play from their opponents. They have never experienced such play in any game they participated in modern history of the European competitions. Many brutal tackles resulted in injuries of our players. Goalkeeper Ondřej Kolář was taken to hospital with ten stitches on his head.

"After the end of the game, the team was not allowed to enter the dressing room. Ondřej Kúdela was assaulted by player Kamara and hit with fists in the head when Rangers manager Steven Gerrard witnessed the incident. Even the UEFA representatives who were also present on the site of the incident were shocked by this behaviour.

"The team is now safe accompanied by the Scottish police."
