Sky pundit made a day of it at Molineux
If Richard Keys and Andy Gray were hoping the sexism row would blow over, they are going to have to wait a bit longer. New footage has now come to light of Gray taking another pop at female assistant referee Sian Massey before Liverpool’s game at Wolves on Saturday.
The Scot was recording a pre-match interview with Sky Sports reporter Andy Burton (no, we didn’t know he was allowed out during an open transfer window either) at Molineux. Burton sparked up the conversation with some comments on Massey’s looks.
Burton: Apparently, a female lino today, a bit of a looker according to Steve the cameraman.
Gray: A female linesman?
Burton: That’s what he said to me. He said she’s alright. Now, I don’t know if I should trust his judgement on that.
Gray: No, I wouldn’t. I definitely wouldn’t.
Burton: Right, ready? Ready, boys?
Crew member: Female assistant, Andy: any good to you?
Gray: No, I can see her from her. [Bleeped expletives] what do women know about the offside rule?
The initial audio of the exchange which sparked this row seemed a bit suspicious, but with out-takes of Sky Sports footage now making it onto Sky News this is looking like a concerted effort to give Gray the elbow.
