Hibernian Sack Stadium Announcer For Taunting Penniless Rivals Hearts By Playing The Beatles’ ‘Taxman’ At Half-Time
By Chris Wright
Table-toppers Hibernian have sacked their stadium announcer after he played ‘Taxman’ by the Beatles as a jibe at local rivals Hearts during the half-time interval at Hibs’ Scottish Premier League tie against Dundee United on Sunday.
A Hibs spokesman said: “The stadium announcer’s contract has been terminated following a breach of conduct.”
That is all. The joyless wazzocks.
Hearts currently find themselves without two piss-pots to rub together, staring down the barrel of a winding up petition from HMRC over a £450,000 tax bill *and* a tax tribunal over £1.75 million relating to taxes owed relating to the club’s loaning of players from owner Vladimir Romanov’s other team, Lithuanian side FBK Kaunas.
To use Layman’s terms, “they deep in the $$$ plop plop.”
