Al Jazeera want to sign Richard Keys and Andy Gray

Middle East adventure for shamed Sky presenters?

If further evidence was needed of Richard Keys and Andy Gray’s fall from grace was required, it looks like they are going to share a broadcasting medium with Osama Bin Laden.

Arabic network Al Jazeera is keen to secure the pair’s services to front its coverage of English football.

Keys is reportedly due in Qatar today to discuss a lucrative contract. If he agrees a deal, it is likely a role for Gray would form part of the contract.

The duo would be faced with the prospects of extended periods working in the Middle East, but that might be a price they are willing/forced to pay in order to find future employment.

    Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer already do work for Al Jazeera so this isn’t nearly as shocking as you’re making it out to be.
