The Comeback Of Pundit Andy Gray Continues Despite New Video Showing Sexist Behavior
Andy Gray "will make a second appearance as co-commentator with BT Sport" -- despite the emergence of the latest video which shows him "behaving in a sexist manner," according to Craig Hope of the London DAILY MAIL. The broadcaster "will use Gray for the FA Cup fifth-round tie between Arsenal and Liverpool on Sunday." The former Sky Sports pundit "returned to the commentary box on British television for the first time last month since he was sacked by Sky in 2011 amid a sexism storm following derogatory comments about a female official." However, just days after his reappearance during the FA Cup tie between Stevenage and Everton, "a video was leaked which showed an off-air recording of Gray and colleague Richard Keys singing 'get your t*** out for the lads' to Sky Sports presenter Clare Tomlinson." BT execs, however, "have refused to be put off by the footage and the 58-year-old will deputise for Michael Owen at the Emirates Stadium this weekend" (DAILY MAIL, 2/13).
