Slavia Prague keeper Ondrej Kolar suffers fractured SKULL after Rangers striker Kemar Roofe's high kick

SLAVIA PRAGUE keeper Ondrej Kolar suffered a fractured SKULL from Rangers striker Kemar Roofe's horror challenge, club president Jaroslav Tvrdik revealed.

Roofe was shown a straight red card just six minutes after he came on as a sub during the explosive Europa League defeat to Slavia Prague at Ibrox.

He caught the 26-year-old Czech Republic international full on the face in the 61st minute, leaving the shot-stopper bloodied from the ugly mid-air clash.

The Czechs were flying back yesterday and Kolar will go straight to hospital in Prague on arrival after being assessed following his gruesome injury, which also required ten stitches.

Tvrdik said: "After an examination overnight, it showed he has a fracture of the left side of his frontal cavity.

"After arrival, Ondrej will go to the care of doctors of the Central Military Hospital."

The keeper required treatment for seven minutes before being stretchered off.

But the game has been completely overshadowed following allegations of racism against Slavia player Ondrej Kudela.

Slavia Prague have DENIED Ondrej Kudela racially abused Glen Kamara – and claim the Rangers star PUNCHED him in the head.

The Czech club have also sensationally claimed that Light Blues boss Steven Gerrard witnessed the attack.

While they further claimed that Uefa officials were also witness to the incident and seemingly "shocked" by it.

Rangers have denied the allegations and described claims Kudela was attacked as "utter nonsense".

Slavia Prague drew Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the Europa League after their 2-0 win at Ibrox ensured a 3-1 aggregate win in the last 16.
