Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler has been urged to clarify and apologise for comments he made when mentioning the Hillsborough disaster on BBC radio this morning.

Martin Tyler must apologise".

Since the comments were made, the BBC posted a statement on Twitter which read: "We regret that we did not robustly challenge Martin Tyler on a comment which appeared to link Hillsborough & hooliganism.

Tyler was speaking on the Today show on Radio 4 earlier on, to mark the return of the Premier League season tonight 30 years after the English top flight was rebranded.

Asked for his thoughts looking back to 1992, he made comments which could be seen as linking Hillsborough to wider 'hooligan-related issues'.

We didn't know quite how the [new] structure of the league would work, we certainly didn't know how satellite television as it was called in those days would work.

Exceptionally crass comments from Martin Tyler on @BBCr4today - a man who should know much better.
