Fans of Glasgow Rangers have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Rangers shared a club statement regarding the recent bans handed to Glen Kamara, Kemar Roofe and Ondrej Kudela.
In the statement posted on the club website, Rangers claimed that they “welcome the suspension” given to the Slavia Prague’s Kudela, after UEFA found him guilty of racially abusing Glen Kamara, with the governing body handing the 34-year-old a ten-game ban.
However, with Kamara and Roofe also being handed three and four-game suspensions respectively, Rangers went on to say that they feel these sanctions are “severe” and have requested clarification regarding UEFA’s decision, before confirming that they intend to appeal the suspensions of both players.
And, after the club then relayed their statement on Twitter, fans of Rangers flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be furious with the club’s acceptance of the length of Kudela’s suspension – it is the minimum ban that can be given out for a racist offence, per The Guardian.
Do you think Kudela's 10-game ban is long enough?
So, what exactly did these Rangers fans have to say in reaction to the club statement?
“Sorry I have to disagree he should have been banned for far more, players get more for betting.”
“Disgrace that it’s only 10 matches.”
“Weak statement, it’s a pathetic ban for Kudela!”
“How can we be happy with a 10-match ban, Rangers? It’s disgusting.”
“Poor statement Mr Rangers.”
“You must be joking.”
“Underwhelmed by this.”
