    PDC chief Barry Hearn slammed the 'disgraceful' behaviour of 'one idiot' who spat at Phil Taylor during week eight of the Premier League in Glasgow.
    Taylor was on his way to the stage to face Raymond van Barneveld, who he beat 7-3, when he was hit in the ear by spit from a spectator.
    But boss Hearn confirmed the man involved was removed from the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre immediately after the unsavoury incident.

    He told The Sun: 'It was disgraceful behaviour. The guy was ejected immediately and won't be allowed back to watch darts.
    'There were 8,000 people there and one idiot decides to do that. Premier League darts does not just have a positive atmosphere in arenas, it's the hottest sport ticket.
    'You always get the odd idiot, as you do in society, so there is no better deterrent than kicking them out of the event.'
    After his win against Van Barneveld on Thursday, Taylor said: 'It was disappointing and I'm a bit disgusted to be honest. I wanted to give the fans a show so it's a shame if one fan tries to spoil that.'
