Alan Hutton has admitted he heard “whispers of an outbreak” among the Rangers and Slavia Prague players in the aftermath of last week’s clash at Ibrox.
The former Gers star, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, has delivered his first-hand account from Ibrox after accusations of assault from the visitors.
Slavia issued a statement on Friday claiming Ondrej Kudela had been subject to a “brutal” physical assault after the full-time whistle and revealed they had filed a criminal complaint.

Glen Kamara and Rangers have accused the Slavia star of using racist language during the Light Blues’ 2-0 defeat.
The Czech outfit then clarified a complaint had been made to the Czech embassy in London ahead of an investigation into the events.
Hutton, who was at Ibrox as part of BT Sport’s television coverage, admitted he heard whispers of “ugly scenes”.
He also revealed Ibrox stewards were rushing towards the scene of the incident.
Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge: “From what I hear there were some ugly scenes after, emotions were obviously running high.
“Obviously I heard of it (on the night). You see different things, all the stewards running in the ground and different things like that.
“You heard whispers of certain things, of an outbreak, if you want. Everything was kind of kept in-house. I’ve only read what possibly went on.
“People don’t react that way if somebody says: ‘You’re not a good player, you’re this. you’re that.’
“If someone on the football pitch abuses me like that, you just laugh, take it and move on.
“You do not act this way. You don’t retaliate, don’t wait for people, don’t want to confront somebody. Really, you just laugh and move on.
“When it’s like this, it’s a totally different kettle of fish in my opinion. It shows me what was said. How hurtful it was to the Rangers team.”
