UEFA investigates racist behaviour towards Finnish midfielder, Glen Kamara

UEFA have launched an investigation into an alleged racist incident aimed at Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara during last night's Nations League match between Finland and Montenegro.

European football’s governing body UEFA has launched an investigation into a suspected incident of racist behaviour aimed at Finnish international player Glen Kamara during Monday evening’s Nations League game against Montenegro.

The Ibrox star played 90 minutes as his country defeated their rivals 2-0 thanks to goals from Oliver Antman and Benjamin Kallman.

However, the game was tainted by an alleged racist incident, and UEFA is now investigating the event.

TV images showed Kamara yelling at several of the Montenegrin players after the heated encounter in the city of Podgorica, which resulted in two red and five yellow cards for the hosts Montenegro. His teammates and staff personnel from the Finnish side then lead him away from the situation.

A statement from the Finnish FA read: “UEFA has started an investigation into the racist behaviour of a Montenegrin player towards Glen Kamara.”

“Neither the Finnish Football Federation nor the Finnish team will comment on the matter for the time being. We will find out more details.”

Kamara was previously the victim of racist behaviour while playing for his club Glasgow Rangers in 2021, during a Europa League match against Slavia Prague, an incident which led to Czech player Ondřej Kúdela receiving a 10-match ban by UEFA.
