UEFA starts investigation into Sparta-Rangers game marred by booing

European football’s governing body, UEFA, has launched an investigation into "potential discriminatory incidents" in a game between Sparta Prague and Glasgow Rangers in the Czech capital last week. Rangers’ Glen Kamara was among a number of players who appeared to be booed by Sparta supporters during the Europa League game. The crowd was made up of nearly 11,000 children and their chaperones after Sparta’s fans were banned over racist abuse during a previous game.

Czech politicians have also become involved in the matter, with the minister of foreign affairs requesting an apology from the Scottish FA after a comment from one of its officials that suggested Czechs were racist.
