Ondrej Kudela was banned for 10 games for racially abusing Glen Kamara
Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela has appealed to Uefa against his 10-match ban for racially abusing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara last month.
The Czech Republic international is contesting his punishment for using racist language in the Europa League match at Ibrox on 18 March.
Kudela received the reasons for the judgment on Thursday.
The 34-year-old's legal firm has confirmed to BBC Scotland that the appeal has now been lodged.

His legal team has argued to Uefa's appeals body that there is insufficient "compelling evidence" proving the content of the remark and the original decision had not taken sufficient heed of evidence in Kudela's defence.
Kudela's ban would rule him out of Uefa competitions, meaning he would miss games for Czech Republic in this year's European Championship, including against Scotland at Hampden on 14 June.
Finland international Kamara was furious after Kudela leaned into his ear and said something while covering his mouth, sparking a fracas late in the second leg of the Europa League last-16 tie, which Slavia won 2-0 to knock out the Scottish champions 3-1 on aggregate.
Kudela later said in a Slavia statement that he swore at the Rangers player but denied using racist language.
Kamara was given a three-game ban by Uefa after being found to have assaulted Kudela in the tunnel after the match.
