Glasgow Rangers fans are livid at Michael Stewart following the BBC pundit’s take on Glen Kamara’s allegations of racist abuse from Ondrej Kudela.
Slavia Prague defeated Rangers 3-1 on aggregate to progress to the quarter-finals of the Europa League. However, in the aftermath of Thursday’s clash at Ibrox, the situation involving Kamara and Kudela has dominated the headlines. Kamara has released a statement backing up his claim, while Slavia themselves have moved to vehemently deny the allegations (slavia.cz).
Stewart was speaking on BBC Sportsound (via The Daily Record), and he was asked about the Kamara situation. However, instead of standing with the Finland international, he suggested there is a chance the former Dundee man may have misheard Kudela and has asked for there to be caution in judging the situation.
Do you agree with Stewart?
The comments were shared on Twitter by @thisisibrox, and they attracted plenty of attention from the Rangers supporters. They took to the social media platform to shared their anger with Stewart.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Stewart below
“He should be sacked immediately @BBCSportsound Utterly deplorable description of events of the last 24 hours. How @mstewart_23 can come out with this is beyond belief. An embarrassment to his colleagues and fellow professionals.”
“That’s what Scottish sports journalism amounts to sadly. Some never was given so much air time. Tragic”
“Would be sacked for less. Shocking comments to make.”
“The BBC wish to bulld bridges with the club. It now ends.”
“Lost for words with that statement from Michael Stewart. I think the reaction from everyone at Glasgow Rangers tells you exactly that there was racial abuse. Once again just trying to be controversial but, comes over as someone who deserves no respect.”
“he should be sacked. Simple, the player went with his mouth covered, said x & ran off. If polite he wouldn’t have. He said exactly what has been suggested, reactions followed. Forget what is said after. Fact he had is hands in an unnatural position, he is guilty.”
