After Glen Kamara was booed during Liverpool’s 1-0 Europa League defeat to Sparta Prague, Steven Gerrard stated not enough is being done to combat racism.
Six months after being racially assaulted by Sparta Prague’s Ondrej Kudela, the Finn was jeered.
Gerrard, who was unaware of any booing directed at Kamara during the encounter at the Letna Stadion, believes harsher penalties are required.
“There needs to be more done,” said the Rangers manager.
“Not just myself, everyone across the world is asking for bigger and more extreme punishments in terms of racism. It needs to be eradicated.
“But until the powers that be do more and treat it more seriously, we’re going to be dealing with these questions for a long time.”
