Former Sky Sports commentator Andy Gray to make return to British TV commentary in Stevenage v Everton FA Cup tie
Gray has not co-commentated on a match since losing his job after making off-camera sexist comments about assistant referee Sian Massey in 2011
Saturday 25 January 2014
Andy Gray will co-commentate on British TV on Saturday afternoon for the first time since losing his job after making off-camera sexist comments in 2011.
The former Everton, Aston Villa and Wolves striker will work on a one-off basis for BT Sport's coverage of the FA Cup fourth-round tie between Stevenage and Everton.
Gray has not worked on British TV since leaving Sky Sports after making comments about assistant referee Sian Massey.
Since leaving Sky, Gray has worked alongside former Sky colleague Richard Keys on talkSPORT radio and also for beIN Sports, which is based in Doha.
He makes his return on British TV in place of regular co-commentator Michael Owen, who misses the match because he is abroad.
A spokeswoman for BT Sport said: "BT can confirm that Andy Gray will make a guest appearance for BT Sport at the FA Cup tie between Stevenage and Everton.
"Andy has a strong cup pedigree with Everton and we are delighted he can stand in for Michael Owen, who is overseas this weekend."
