• Kudela accused of racism at Rangers, which he denies
  • Defender said by club to be ill and injured

Slavia Prague have announced that the defender Ondrej Kudela, who is at the centre of Uefa and police investigations into alleged racial abuse, will miss the Europa League quarter-final first leg at Arsenal on Thursday because of injury and illness.

Kudela was involved in an incident with Rangers’ Glen Kamara, who said his opponent had racially abused him during the Czech side’s win at Ibrox on 18 March.
