Mills 'horrified' as new 'seriously worrying' Rangers-Sparta details emerge via Sky
Danny Mills has insisted the alleged scenes at Rangers v Sparta Prague are “seriously worrying”.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Premier League and England defender admitted he was surprised Steven Gerrard claimed he did not hear any booing of Glen Kamara.
The Rangers boss told BT Sport after the game he did not hear the reported booing of Kamara who was racially abused by Ondrej Kudela of Slavia Prague last season.
However, in a press conference today (October 1), via Sky Sports, Gerrard revealed he heard the jeering when he watched the game back.
Sparta were supposed to play the game behind closed doors but 10,000 schoolchildren, along with their chaperones, were allowed in.
“The concern I had was that Steven Gerrard said he didn’t really hear anything,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“If every time he touched the ball 10,000 people booed if that’s the only people in the stadium and every time Kamara touched the ball they were booing how can you not hear that?
“If they were, it’s horrific. Kids have been manipulated or encouraged to do this. I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be off their own back. It’s whoever is looking after them, whatever it might be, who are putting that prejudice in their head.
“How could he not hear that? it’s the only thing he should be able to hear, especially as a manager on the touchline.
“There is a lot more to come out of this situation. If it’s only kids in there booing that is seriously worrying.”
