Video of Andy Gray has been released featuring the Sky Sports presenter making more sexist comments about Sian Massey, the female assistant referee from Saturday’s Wolves against Liverpool match.
The video segment was a pre-match interview conducted at Molineux. In the video (fast forward to minute 1:00), you can hear Gray being told that a female assistant referee would be in the match.
Crew: “Female assistant, Andy, any good to you?”
Gray: “No, I can see her from here.”
Gray: “(Expletives)… what do women know about the offside rule.”
Yet again Andy Gray proves how much of a male chauvinist he is. But, also, coincidentally Gray questions what Massey (and women) know about the offside rule even before the match kicked off. During the game, Massey made the correct decision for Liverpool’s first goal when most supporters in Molineux thought it was offside obviously proving that Massey does know a lot about the offside rule.
The other interesting aspect of this story (and video) is that it was released by Sky News, the news (and sister) channel of Sky Sports. I find it surprising that Sky News would release the raw footage but maybe they thought their TV ratings are of more importance than Gray’s reputation?
H/T to 101 Great Goals for the video.
UPDATE: The Guardian is reporting that Sky Sports reporter Andy Burton, who is seen in the above video alongside Andy Gray, has been suspended. Burton had been due to appear in his role as a touchline reporter on Sky’s coverage of tomorrow night’s Carling Cup semi-final second leg between Birmingham City and West Ham but will now be replaced, it is understood.
UPDATE: A newly released video of Richard Keys shows the Sky Sports presenter making more sexist remarks. The video can be seen here.
