Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler has been slammed after linking Hillsborough to 'other hooligan related issues'.

Tyler, who has worked for Sky since 1990, was asked during the interview about the early days of broadcasting in the Premier League.

Tyler then added: 'You've got to remember football was in a bit of a crisis at that time.

We weren't that long after Hillsborough and other hooligan related issues as well, so it was very much a difficult time for the game generally.

Tyler was referring to the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 which resulted in the unlawful deaths of 97 Liverpool fans at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium before their FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

A statement from the BBC read: 'We regret that we did not robustly challenge Martin Tyler on a comment which appeared to link Hillsborough and hooliganism.

'Tyler himself should know better but why do interviewers never challenge these smears that have been so resoundingly disproven time and again?'.
