Hibernian sack stadium announcer for 'breach of conduct'

Hibernian v Dundee United
Hibs won the match at Easter Road by two goals to one

Hibernian have confirmed they have sacked their stadium announcer "following a breach of conduct".

Reports suggest the dismissal relates to an incident at the club's Easter Road ground during Sunday's match against Dundee United.

The Beatles song 'Taxman' was played near the end of the half-time interval.

Hibs' Edinburgh rivals Hearts have been served with a winding-up order over unpaid PAYE and VAT and are also contesting a separate £1.75m tax bill.

And Hearts have asked their fans to invest in a share issue and buy up tickets for upcoming matches to help preserve the club's immediate future.

A spokesman for Hibs said: "The stadium announcer's contract has been terminated following a breach of conduct."
