Martin Tyler has apologised after he linked the ‘Hillsborough tragedy and other hooligan related incidents’ whilst appearing in an interview with the BBC.

An apology did soon come from the BBC, which read:“we regret that we did not robustly challenge Martin Tyler on a comment which appeared to link Hillsborough and hooliganism.” You can see Rotherham’s tweet below alongside a video of Tyler’s insulting comments courtesy of @MetroMayorSteve on Twitter:

The BBC are believed to have received a high number of complaints regarding the comments and Tyler soon released the following statement: “while discussing various crises facing football 30 years ago, I referred to some examples including the Hillsborough disaster and also controversy over hooliganism at matches”.

The Sky Sports commentator was discussing 30 years of the Premier League earlier today when he made the insulting comments and received major backlash.

Steve Rotherham was one of many to express his outrage at the 76-year-old’s comments and took to his Twitter account writing: “Exceptionally crass comments from Martin Tyler on @BBCr4today – a man who should know much better.

It was clear that his comments were disrespectful and outright wrong but he still continued the interview as if nothing had happened.

“Tyler himself should know better but why do interviewers never challenge these smears that have been so resoundingly disproven time after time?” It is rather bemusing as to why nobody challenged Tyler at the time.
