Footballing inadequate Mark Lawrenson has been fired from his job as BBC pundit.
The joke human being, who had seen his role diminished this season, was carried off television centre premises after he complained his key card did not work.
But a BBC spokesperson explained that Lawrenson has in fact been sacked after decades of terrible analysis and looking like a P.E teacher from the 1970s.
“Mark Lawrenson has not been paid in years.
“Unfortunately, he failed to get the message, so we destroyed any evidence he ever worked here.
“If he ever comes back, we will crush him in front of anyone who has ever cared about him.”
This shocking revelation will likely have a profound effect on the former Liverpool player, who famously does not have a life outside the job he was never very good at.
However, a source close to Lawrenson revealed that he intends to continue with his poor quality punditry and jokes that would make a dead person cringe.
“Mark is a deluded fuck wit who cannot function outside the narrow world of football commentary.
“He understands he doesn’t have any charisma or talent, but aside from self harming and scratching himself while he is talking to people, it’s the only thing he knows.
