The Finn was incensed after Kudela whispered into his ear during a Europa League tie at Ibrox on March 18th.
Kudela had been handed a provisional one-match ban over a lesser charge of insulting Kamara, and that ban is included within the overall 10-match sanction.
Kamara has also been banned for three matches after being found guilty of assaulting Kudela in the tunnel after the game.
Kamara claimed Kudela called him a “f****** monkey”, something Kudela denied.
Kamara’s account was supported by Rangers team-mate Bongani Zungu and Uefa’s control, ethics and disciplinary body (CEDB) has now found Kudela guilty of using racist language.
The body’s full written reasons will be published at a later stage, and both sanctions are open to appeal.
