Andy Gray: Disgraced pundit's comeback to British television continues with him confirmed to commentate on Arsenal v Liverpool
Gray, alongside colleague Richard Keys, were sacked by Sky in 2011
Thursday 13 February 2014
Andy Gray's return to British television continues, despite the release of another video containing sexist behaviour during his Sky Sports days since he made his comeback last month.
The Scot has been confirmed for a second guest slot on BT Sport on Sunday, with him set to be co-commentator for Arsenal v Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round.
Gray has been working with former Sky colleague Richard Keys in Qatar since they were fired from Sky in 2011 after leaked tapes emerged of them making shameful and sexist off-air comments.
The pundit made his return to British television for the first time in three years last month, when he filled in for Michael Owen on BT Sport for Everton's FA Cup tie against Stevenage.
In the days following that match at Broadhall Way, however, the latest of the videos containing Gray and Keys emerged on the Football Ramble website, showing the pair singing "get your t*** out for the lads" to Sky Sports colleague Claire Tomlinson. The video was filmed in the early 2000s and was the most recent leak to further damage the reputation of the two.
Clip thought to be from early 2000s show the disgraced pair making a number of derogatory comments at fellow presenter, Clare Tomlinson:
They were first suspended after a tape emerged of them criticising female linesman Sian Massey in January 2011, and then soon another video of them making sexist comments to colleague Charlotte Jackson was also leaked before the pair were sacked.
"Andy Gray made a guest appearance last weekend and we were happy with his commentary," BT Sport said after his stint commentating on the FA Cup tie.
Both Keys and Gray have said there was an agenda to force them out of Sky, with Keys claiming that they were "bugged".
