Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has expressed his dissatisfaction with fans’ behavior during the UEFA Europa League game against Sparta Prague. So, after Rangers lost 1-0 away (football results), Steven Gerrard speaks up against fans’ racism toward Kamara at the Letna Stadium last night.
Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara had to quit the pitch in his side’s UEFA Europa League defeat and it was ugly.
Though the crowd of 10,000 included several supervised children, the home fans turned vulgar and abusive toward the away defender.
Actually, they ruthlessly taunted and jeered the Ibrox midfielder throughout the entire fixture, not just when he left the pitch.
But now, Glen Kamara’s head coach Steven Gerrard has spoken up in his defense and against fans’ racist behaviour.

“There needs to be more done,” the coach replied when asked what would he expect from UEFA, Daily Record reports.
“Not just from myself, from everyone across the world, asking for more and bigger and more extreme punishment towards racism.”
“It needs to be eradicated,” Gerrard said about racism, especially racism in football. “It’s important that the powers that be do more and treat it more serious.
“Until that happens, we are going to the dealing with the racial abuse for a long time.”
