The former Ibrox striker was thrilled to see his team go top of the Premiership after a big win over Hamilton.


Andy Gray isn't normally one to stay quiet but he didn't have much to say as he discovered Rangers were top of the Premiership.
While working on beINSPORTS English Premier League coverage, Richard Keys then discussed the defeat for Celtic against Livingston and Rangers big win over Hamilton.
Alongside Roberto Di Matteo, the former Rangers striker and boyhood fan burst into a huge smile as he asked Keys to keep the graphic of the league table on the screen for all to see.
The video shows behind the scene with the table only available for viewers at home and Gray is loving life as he looks at Rangers top of the league.

It starts with Keys presenting as he says: "Celtic lost to Livingston by two goals to nil, Rangers followed that up by beating Hamilton by five and that’s now confirmed they finish top of the Scottish Premiership tonight.
"There we are, don’t think any saw Livingston’s win coming ..."

But he's interrupted by Gray as a big smile appears on his face and he laughs: "Can you just leave that there for a minute?"
Keys continued by saying: "After all the turmoil at Ibrox the last few years, they are back where they started" before he was once again interrupted by Gray who jumped in to say: "As Rangers fans would say ‘back where we belong’ but obviously as a neutral you have to couch your words carefully" but he couldn't hide the smile on his face.
Gray spent one season at Rangersat the end of his career in 1988/89. He scored five goals in 14 league appearances as the Ibrox side won the first of their nine in a row titles before he spent a season with Cheltenham in the English conference.

Find it hard to take him seriously as a Rangers fan when one of his lines as a pundit for the FIFA video game had him talking about celtic winning 10 titles in a row in the 60s and 70s.

I feel privileged to have seen Andy Gray score for us, he loved every goal and celebrated them like a supporter getting a winning ticket to score for us in a friendly :))
Me too.

I was also there at Love Street when he scored what turned out to be a vital equalising goal in a 1-1 draw whilst on our way to the first title of the NIAR.

Never hides his absolute love of the Rangers. And why should he :))

Bein Sports have started paying more attention to Scottish football since Gerrard arrived and I do enjoy listening to Keys & Gray.

We even get studio build up & analysis on old firm day now. Other matches still just the 90mins live though.

You can’t take him seriously because of a line he was paid to say in a make believe game of Football on the PlayStation ?!
Yea, I’d like to think most Rangers supporting ex players would know not to wax lyrical about the tims for something they didn’t do.

It doesn’t trouble me, I somehow manage to get out of bed every morning while thinking about it, but any bear with a few brain cells knows that they’ve never won 10 titles in a row ffs.

Hahaha.

One of the things you have to love about FollowFollow is that, no matter how much someone does to put themselves out there as one of us and show the club a bit of support in the media, you'll always have one guy who can dig up the most obscure snippet from the depth of hell to say "hard to take him seriously as a Rangers fan when..."

FIFA is total garbage anyway so I think I can give Andy Gray a pass on reading out a line of dialogue that he was paid to read out alongside probably thousands (at least hundreds) of lines of dialogue in a goddamn videogame.

Which FIFA was this? I'm going to die laughing if it turns out this was FIFA 2004 or something and you've been holding on to this for about 15 years waiting for the right moment.

"Andy Gray is a big Rangers Fan."
"Whaaaaat!? I'll have you know that he once said the tarriers won 10 in a row in a videogame!!"

Hahahaha. :)

Randy Andy, top man, stuck his head (the one on top of his shoulders) where boots would fear to tread, one of the bravest footballers ever and top, top Rangers man.

Compare Andy to some of the ex-players and indeed ex-fans elsewhere in the media, the list is endless, B Ferguson and his happy snaps outside the Piggery with his new friends, Fraser Wishart in general, Alex Rae on the radio, Thompson on BBC, Charlie Miller and his Sun columns, Jim Whyte going out of his way to turn the knife at every opportunity, Stephen Craigan on everything.

Rangers fans have very long memories and none of this will be forgotten, you took Timmy's silver when we were down, we will not forget.

There is never any point pretending to be anything other than what you are, the other side will never, ever respect you no matter what you say or do, all that will happen is your own will despise you.

No Surrender Andy Gray.

My abiding memory of Andy was about a month after Villa paid a staggering £1m for him, he was stoating down New street in Birmingham, pissed and bare footed, we were going in to the same pub, but they refused him as he was so pissed. :p

Always nails his colours to the mast. As said previously in the thread, I always recall the sheer joy in his face when he scored for us. One of the highlights of my 88-89 VHS tape :cool:
