Statement from Andy Gray

Sacked football commentator, Andy Gray released a statement today saying: “I am very sorry that certain comments made by me have caused offence. Such comments were made off air to work colleagues, and were of course never intended to be broadcast.

“I was very upset when the comments were brought to my attention, and it was my intention to apologise on Monday night when I was back on air for the Bolton v Chelsea game.

“Sadly I was unable to do so as I was suspended from the show by Sky Sports and have now been sacked. Football is my life and I am devastated by losing the job that I love.

“I am equally upset that third parties have been dragged into this issue.

“I ask that the media respect their privacy so that they can continue in their roles.

“I have worked for Sky Sports loyally for over 20 years and I do not wish to comment further at this time.”

Gray was sacked on Tuesday for sexist comments made to assistant referee Sian Massey and fellow work colleague, Charlotte Jackson.
