GLEN KAMARA has broken his silence about the alleged racist abuse he received against Slavia Prague and admitted he wished he had walked off the park at Ibrox.

Kamara has claimed that he was called a ‘f****** monkey’ by Ondrej Kudela as Steven Gerrard’s side were knocked out of the Europa League last month.

Slavia have defended their Czech defender - who will be banned for at least 10 games if found guilty by a UEFA disciplinary panel - and have accused Kamara of assaulting Kudela in the tunnel following the last 16 fixture.

That charge could result in a five-match ban for Kamara but it is the alleged comment from Kudela – and the targeted racial abuse he has been subjected to online in recent weeks – that is his main concern as spoke for the first time about the incident.

Kamara said: “I had so many different emotions and felt like a victim, I just felt like a little boy.

"It was a very weird feeling... it was such a big stage Europa league, a big tournament and it was... I don't know what it's called, really explain how I felt. Hopefully I never have to feel that again, really.

“If I could go back to the time of the game, I'd walk off the pitch a hundred percent.

"My manager was actually trying to get me off the pitch, but like I said, I was on my own on the pitch. I couldn't hear anybody.

“And I was just different emotions. So I wasn't listening... Because this kind of thing, shouldn't be in the game. Um, you know, it's, it's an everyday life thing.

“I think, I don't know if in our lifetime we will see it change, but if I can make a change in some way, I'll do it.

“I haven't paid much attention to what he's done after this whole incident, but I've seen their fans, how they've reacted, and I'll get [racist] abuse probably every day on my Instagram.

“Every day, every day easily, I'm not one that gets really affected by it, so I'm all right. But how the team has reacted and taken it. It's sad to be honest.”

Kamara received fulsome backing and support from Gerrard and his Rangers team-mates in the aftermath of the incident at Ibrox and the football world has rallied around the Finnish internationalist.

Slavia have been public in their defence of Kudela and Kamara has now spoken to ITV News and questioned the impact the taking a knee gesture has had on the battle against racism.

Kamara said: “I feel like, I need to tell my story. The online messages I've been getting, the racial abuse online, Instagram, Twitter, where ever else.

"I felt like I need to tell my story and as the victim, I feel like it needs to be said. And the amount [of] statements Slavia have been putting out, I think I need to play it right and tell my story, my side of the story and the truth.

"I feel like it's over to UEFA now. And hopefully they can come up, come out with a response.

“I hope it never happens again. I can only imagine how the black players on his team feel. I think enough is enough.

“It (taking a knee) hasn't changed anything. We've done it for a whole season and towards the end of the season, what’s come about it? It hasn't changed anything.”
