HMRC seizes former football star's pay cheque

Mo Johnston's BBC pay cheque seized by HMRC

Former Scottish football star Maurice ‘Mo’ Johnston has had a £1,000 pay
cheque from the BBC seized by HM Revenue & Customs, as the department looks
to recoup a £450,000 tax bill, according to reports.

The £1,000 is understood to have been held in a BBC bank account for his
appearance on a Scottish radio sports programme, which will be paid directly to
HMRC, reports The Herald.

If Johnston, believed to be residing the US, does not contest HMRC’s actions
in the next 15 days, the money will be paid to the department.

Johnston made his name in the 1980s when he made the controversial switch
from Celtic to Old firm rival Rangers, having spent a period between the two
teams at French club Nantes.
