Rangers: Fans slam Alexey Sorokin comments

Rangers: Fans slam Alexey Sorokin comments - Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers fans are livid with comments from from a member of the FIFA Council, Alexey Sorokin, who said it is a waste of time criticising the length of the ban Ondrej Kudela received for racially abusing Glen Kamara.

The Gers were knocked out of the Europa League last month by Slavia Prague after losing 2-0 at Ibrox, but that match in particular was marred by an allegation of racial abuse made by Kamara towards Kudela. Kamara was then accused of assaulting Kudela in the tunnel.

How well do you know Glasgow Rangers' transfer business? Give our quiz a go to find out! To start off, how much did Rangers spend to sign Mikel Arteta from Barcelona?

Follow an investigation from UEFA into the allegations, Kudela received a 10-game ban from all competitions organised by the governing body, while Kamara was hit with a three-game suspension of his own (The Guardian). Speaking after the announcement, Sorokin defended the decision and said there was no point arguing.

Do you think a 10-game ban is enough?

Yes

No

The comments, which were shared on Twitter by Bryan Swanson, did not go down well at all with the Gers supporters, and they took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.

“This whole interview is absolutely disgusting. Sorokin’s utter contempt towards Bryan Swansons questions is a clear indication of UEFA/FIFA’s lack of commitment and desire to irradiate racism from football.”

“His attitude sums up the problem. He didn’t seem to really be interested in sending out a strong message to help stop racism….because he kept referring to both sides….when someone is found GUILTY…there is only one side to support.”

“Totally sums up UEFA , Russion UEFA executive who denied any racism in Russian society in the run up to the world cup finals suggests black players should be happy with a bare minimum ban for obviously racist player. Completly out of touch with the world.”
