Controversial pundit Andy Gray to join BT Sport

CONTROVERSIAL FORMER SKY Sports analyst and ex-Everton and Aston Villa star Andy Gray is set to join up with BT Sport, it has been confirmed.

Gray was widely praised for his punditry with Sky Sports throughout the 90s and 00s, before losing his job with the station three years ago today after making sexist comments about Premier League official Sian Massey.

Gray’s colleague, Richard Keys, also stepped down from Sky for similar ill-judged remarks about Massey at the time.

It is understood that the 58-year-old will be co-commentator for the channel’s coverage of the evening FA Cup game between Stevenage and Everton.

Among those reacting to the news was BT Sport presenter, Des Kelly, who tweeted: “Welcome to Andy Gray, who joins the @btsport team on co-commentary duties. Starting tomorrow.”
