Stelling goes on fine rant after son gets charged £100 for five minute stop

Jeff Stelling has been hailed by fans online after launching into a rant after his son was slapped with a £100 parking fine.

The Soccer Saturday icon, who is set to quit his role at the end of the season, shared the story of how one of his sons was hit with the fine after travelling to a Brighton game during Saturday's show.

And Stelling took the opportunity to to call out the parking fine company.

Stelling said: "I might have told you before but one of my sons is a Brighton fan. He went to see them at Manchester United a few weeks ago.

"On the way back he stopped and dropped a friend off who was getting a train back from Crewe. He pulled into the Crewe Alexandra car park.

"He dropped his friend off, had a glug of water and then drove out. Then this week, we got this (letter) from Parking Eye.

"It's a £100 parking fine for, as it says here, five minutes.

"That works out at £1,200 per hour. Honestly, this should be against the law.

Who do you think will replace Stelling at the end of the season? Let us know in the comments section.

"And I'm not blaming Crewe Alexandra at all but they should take a look at who they are associated with because it doesn't do their reputation any good at all."

Fans flocked to social media to hail Stelling for his stance, with one fan tweeting: "Jeff Stelling calling out Parking Fine companies on Soccer Saturday hahaha! Legend of a man".

Another responded by posting: "Someone tell @SkySportsNews to tell Jeff they’re already breaking the law. £50 cap and 10min grace period. Report to local MP and stop these Cowboys from having access to DVLA and our personal data."
