Andy Gray in new sexism row after video leaked

News | Published:

Former Aston Villa footballer Andy Gray has been embroiled in another sexism row after footage was leaked of a video showing alleged sexist behaviour by him and co-presenter Richard Keys.

Gray was sacked by Sky in 2011 after tapes surfaced showing him making sexist remarks about female assistant referee Sian Massey and towards a colleague, Charlotte Jackson.

Gray made a return to British TV last weekend as a guest commentator for BT Sport in its coverage of the FA Cup tie between Stevenage and Everton.

Now a previously unseen clip has emerged on website The Football Ramble, showing the pair chanting "Get your t**s out" at Sky's touchline reporter Clare Tomlinson, apparently during the early 2000s.

WARNING: This video features some offensive language:

BT Sport has refused to comment over whether it will hire Gray again, but a statement from the broadcaster said: "Andy Gray made a guest appearance last weekend and we were happy with his commentary."

It is not known how the video surfaced, but a source at Sky said: "We recognised this as an issue three years ago and we dealt with it."

Keys and Gray have recently been working for Qatar-owned broadcaster BeInSport fronting their live Premier League coverage.

Keys referred briefly to the latest row on Twitter, saying only: "It's pathetic."

In 2011, Keys blamed "dark forces" for forcing the pair out of Sky.
