BBC Sport - Gordon Taylor compares Ched Evans case to Hillsborough

Taylor on Evans and Hillsborough

On Thursday Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor compared the Ched Evans rape case with the Hillsborough tragedy.

Taylor told BBC Sport: "He wouldn't have been the first person to be found guilty, maintained their innocence and been proved right. We know what happened with Hillsborough."

The PFA boss has now apologised for these comments, stating he did not want to upset anybody connected to the Hillsborough case.
