Steven Gerrard says he 'LOVED' how Arsenal STARED DOWN Slavia Prague - and racist abuse victim Glen Kamara admired it too - after Alexandre Lacazette led show of defiance against the team who knocked out Rangers after player's 'f***ing monkey' insult

Steven Gerrard has admitted he 'loved' watching Arsenal against Slavia Prague on Thursday as the Gunners stared down their Czech opponents while taking the knee before beating them 4-0.

The Gunners thrashed Slavia to win 5-1 on aggregate and advance into the Europa League semi-finals, after the Czech Republic giants had beaten Gerrard's Rangers in the previous round.

The last-16 second-leg in Glasgow was marred by Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara accusing Slavia's Ondrej Kudela a 'f***ing monkey' in the closing moments of the game.

A day after Kudela was banned for 10 UEFA matches for racist abuse, Arsenal took the knee on Thursday night in front of Slavia's players - who chose to stand arm in arm with each other during the gesture.
