New Footage Leaked Of Andy Gray and Richard Keys Using Sexist Remarks Again [VIDEO]

New footage of soccer pundits Andy Gray and Richard Keys has been released, which shows the pair making more sexist remarks.

The footage, which appears to be from between 2001-2006 at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, was released on YouTube today. In the video, Gray and Keys joke with Sky Sports reporter Clare Tomlinson and sing “Get your t**s out for the lads” at her.

In 2011, Gray and Keys were under fire after getting caught on tape making sexist remarks. Keys resigned from his position at Sky Sports, while Gray was terminated by Sky for unacceptable behavior.

The timing of the newly-released footage is unfortunate for Gray as he returned to UK television last weekend as a co-commentator for the first time since the 2011 controversy.

Someone inside in the industry must have it in for Gray as the timing of the release of this footage, which The Football Ramble podcast released, couldn’t have come at a worse time. Someone has been sitting on this footage for 8-13 years but has only decided to release it now?

    This is a glaringly obvious propaganda attempt by Sky in order to tarnish the growing reputation of BT Sport (i.e. “look at the type of person BT is willing to employ… we sacked him!”). It’s funny how a 13 year old clip has suddenly appeared after one of them worked on UK TV for a rival.

    Not only that, it’s not a live broadcast – it’s a rehearsal. There are very few people who will have had access to those tapes – and why only leak it now? Why not at the time? Yet again, Sky have stitched these two up good and proper and I highly doubt it’ll be the last bit of ammunition they’ve got in their war with BT! Dirty tactics!

    So whats the difference? This incident happened before the last one.

    Gosh people love getting their panties in a wad. Get over it. Why does the fact that he is a sexist have any impact on his ability to commentate? He doesnt do womens football. Nor are there women playing with the men?

    • Paul says:

      Not only did this incident happen before the well documented one but Sky clearly knew of it (because it’s on tape!) and yet they chose not to act on it.

      Makes you wonder if Keys is in fact right when he very openly says the previous footage was leaked in order to stitch them up to take the spotlight off other bad press Sky were getting at the time (the phone hacking scandal)… basically using them as scapegoats. Certainly does add up knowing that they’ve sat on this for 13 years…

      Everybody deserves a second chance IMO and if he’d been forgiven for an incident in 2011, why the sudden moral outrage over an incident in 2001 that Sky themselves clearly didn’t have issue with (until now!)?

    • PhillySpur says:

      You’re exactly right. This is football and it’s how men talk. Who cares if he’s sexist?

      • Chris in Dallas says:

        Rebecca Lowe, Kelly Cates, Alex Hammond, Kristy Gallacher, Claire Tomlinson just to name a few…they probably care a great deal.

    seems only fair andy ,shows us his tits

  4. Frill Artist says:

    Oh my God! He said t!ts at a woman. Burn him at the stake.

  5. Angry says:

    Who cares?!! It’s sad how sensitive our culture has gotten….

  6. Fulhamish says:

    A perfect example of just how insulated these guys are in their jock culture. They have no clue how to act in mainstream society.

    That being said, he should be old enough to know better. There has to be some kind of accountability.

  7. Smokey Bacon says:

    Enough already! Final nail in their broadcasting coffin.

  8. Simon Burke says:

    He’s a moron (andy) and the reality is they should have been put out to pasture after the Sian Massey affair.

    I heard his Bt sports commentary on Stevenage v Everton and he was very good but ultimately he’s learned nothing.
    Listen to their show on TalkSpite Friday evenings at 7pm gmt and you’ll realise Keys and Grey are still pretty awful.
    The football ramble has it in for Keys. Their twitter feed is often hilarious. KEYS IS A….

  9. Simon Burke says:

    PS this video changes nothing. It predates anything we knew. Their radio show however shows them up.

  10. Brn442 says:

    Andy Gray should be shunned for his crap South African World Cup analysis.

  11. scrumper says:

    Somebody at Sky has it in for Andy Gray. I for one really enjoy listening to someone as passionate about the game as him. Every day men talk about womens t$ts and who they want to have s#x with. Women say just the same if not worse. Let’s all grow up. There are a lot worse things in life to worry about.

    All cloak and dagger from Sky who have shown their true colours.
