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.”

    @Anonymous – Good grief. Small club mentality ahoy. If a 5-1 win from over a hundred years ago is your club’s proudest moment, you really have issues. Let it go. On the plus side, you should boss the third division when you get shit-canned in a few weeks.

    Oddly, you seem to be able to count to six (or four, depending on how you look at it) but your club cannot balance its own books. You should apply for the job. Become the king of the Jambos*!
