George Galloway has been sacked by talkRADIO after sending an allegedly anti-Semitic tweet.
The former MP posted on the social media site after the Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham on Saturday night.
He praised Liverpool’s win, before adding: “No #Israël flags on the Cup!”
On Monday, the radio station said it had terminated his weekly show.
Mr Galloway hit back at his former employer, tweeting:
“See you in Court guys.”
The original tweet from Mr Galloway on Saturday night saw the former Labour and Respect MP face a backlash on Twitter.
He defended the comment, claiming a number of Tottenham fans were flying the flag of Israel in the crowd and it showed an affiliation to a “racist state”.

But he was accused of being racist himself, including by Tottenham football club itself, which told Sky News the tweet was “blatant anti-Semitism”.
On Monday morning, talkRADIO said it had cancelled Mr Galloway’s show, adding: “As a fair and balanced news provider, talkRADIO does not tolerate anti-Semitic views.”
Taking to Twitter again, Mr Galloway said he’d been given a “red card” by the station for “over-celebrating” Liverpool’s success.
Mr Galloway has hosted The Mother of All Talk Shows show since 2016 and has breached Ofcom rules twice – once after discussing anti-Semitism accusations in the Labour Party and once after a show on the Salisbury poisonings.
