Campbell slams 'crazy decision' from UEFA after latest Rangers Kamara twist
Kevin Campbell has slammed UEFA for banning Glen Kamara after concluding their investigation into the allegations made after Rangers’ game against Slavia Prague in March.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed Kamara’s ban was another crazy decision from the authorities.
On Wednesday, UEFA announced that Kamara would be banned for three games for ‘assaulting another player’ after the clash at Ibrox last month.
Kamara was responding after being racially abused by Ondrej Kudela during the game, an offence which has seen the player hit with a 10 game ban by UEFA.
Campbell called UEFA’s decision to ban Kamara an ‘absolute disgrace’ but admitted that he wasn’t surprised by the ruling after years of crazy decisions.
“It’s an absolute disgrace,” Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“How does Kamara get banned? Someone racially abuses him and he gets banned. The authorities are crazy.
“How does that appease anything? We’ve seen the governing bodies do crazy things in the past and this is just another crazy decision.
“Am I Surprised? No. This system has been going on for far too long, a system where people aren’t held accountable.
“Accountability has gone out of the window, it’s crazy.”
Kamara, 25, will be banned for Rangers’ next three European games which will see him miss the start of his side’s Champions League qualifying campaign next year.
Rangers’ European journey ended at the hands of Slavia Prague after losing 3-1 on aggregate in the last 16 stage of the Europa League.
