Glen Kamara’s racism investigation withdrawn as player opts against filing UEFA complaint

UEFA has halted its investigation into alleged racial abuse received by Glen Kamara, according to the Finnish FA, since the Rangers midfielder does not wish to file an official complaint.

The Ibrox star, Glen Kamara has again become the centre of news after it was confirmed in the early hours of today that UEFA will no longer investigate the alleged racist comment he received in the final minutes of the Nations league match against Montenegro on Monday night. 

Glen Kamara, who had previously been a victim of racist comments by Czech defender Ondrej Kudela during a Europa League game at Ibrox, chooses not to file an official complaint against his Montenegrin abuser.  

It was learned the 26-year-old has declined to comment further after it was alleged he suffered abuse from an unnamed Montenegrin player and because of that, UEFA cannot investigate.

The Finnish FA stated: “Our team management and the players told the referee appointed by UEFA and the match delegate their views on the incident of racism in the match against Montenegro immediately after the match.” 

“In the same context, the referee and the match delegate informed the Finnish team management that the matter was known to them and taken into account, which calmed down the situation that had aroused strong emotions after the game.” 

“However, in the discussions held between us and UEFA on Tuesday, it has become clear that the match delegate’s report will not ultimately lead to an investigation.” 

“In UEFA’s system, the initiation of an investigation requires the player’s confirmation or the player’s own notification of the matter or confirmation of the matter by other players, officials or referees.” 

“Glen Kamara does not want to make an official announcement to UEFA or comment on the matter.” 

“So the suspicion of racism does not progress to UEFA’s disciplinary investigation.”
