Czech foreign minister summons UK ambassador in racism row after black footballer ‘booed by stadium full of kids’ in Prague

The Czech Foreign Minister has summoned British Ambassador Nick Archer following a critical tweet over a racism row that emerged from Glasgow Rangers’ Europa League match against Sparta Prague.

Czech Deputy Prime Minister Jan Hamacek made the demand of Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhanek, which has now been realized, to “immediately halt such attacks” while insisting that Czechs are neither racist nor “rotten fruit.”

Hamacek retweeted an outburst from the Equality And Diversity Advisor To The Scottish FA, Marvin Bartley, who wrote: “The worst thing about the scenes in Prague last night is that I’m not shocked in the slightest!”

Bartley was referring to what took place in Rangers’ 1-0 defeat to Sparta in the Czech capital, where Glen Kamara was booed throughout the match by home support that contained some 10,000 children after taking the knee, and was eventually sent off in the 74th minute for a second yellow card.
