It’s still absolutely ridiculous, that two great commentators get the Bums Rush, due too the Femistta Brigade, and Sky bowing to them.

1. I dont care what he said on FIFA
2. SG said he could no longer defend Morelos, and Morelos has learned. So that comment hardly a henious crime.
3. Loved his time at RFangers the joy is clear to see.
4. Never misses a chance to state we are the greatest.

That will do for me.
 
Well done Andy ,wish more were like him instead of pandering to that other lot.
One of a very few that does not hide behind being a supporter of the big bad bigoted Rangers.

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.
Brilliant stuff,but if we could just rein it in a wee bit. We've the likes of Ojo spouting crap when,given the way he's playing is not wise. We keep going as we are one game at a time. In one sense the break kills momentum on the other hand if it strengthens us in getting the likes of Jack and Kent back all for it.

Andy is a Great Drumchapel Man. He always said hello to everyone he met when back in the scheme to visit his Mum.Always smiling.
Great Guy IMOP.
I used to live just south of the Clyde Tunnel, one summer day back in the late 70s I saw this state-of-the-art Ford Escort XR3i cabriolet with the roof down coming from the tunnel direction pull into our wee cul-de-sac, about turn, and head back towards the tunnel. Andy Gray was driving, him and his three passengers all had their taps aff. He must have taken a wrong turning and ended up on the good side of the river.

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.
Here! Here!

Notice that article is from mid July and would imagine it’s based on last season and his discipline?
Surely he cannot help but be impressed by Alfie this season so far?
I certainly hope he's changed his mind. Morelos has earned it.

It's quite funny that one of the best pundits in the past three decades is being pulled up on here for something he said on a game of FIFA.

Aye he was Kingsridge man he Stayed up the Hill, Monymusk I think.
John MacDonald was a Kingsridge man too. I think he was either from Kendoon or Abbotshall.

Andy was a coupla years in front of me at Kingsridge.

Met John McDonald on pitch for Ray Wilkins match V Chelsea at Sutton.

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.
Heard it all now... what next? "I can't take Andy Gray serious because his second name begins with G which is the same letter as the start of green which is what Celtic play in"

Fs get a grip. Lol

You're right mate, that's exactly the same as thinking the scum won 10 in a row.

Aye and "thinking the scum won 10 in a row" is the same as "read out the lines he was paid to read out for a video game".


No need to click the link. It's The Sun. Just putting it there so others know it is actually a thing that happened.

So this was in FIFA 2010!

The guy made a mistake in a video game 9 years ago lads. Hard to take him seriously after that!

"But Andy, who has recorded thousands of lines of in-game chat, blamed a dodgy script from the makers."
"He said: Obviously it was a mistake and I hope EA Sports will rectify it.”


There you go.

The guy is reading out thousands of pre-written lines for a game. He made an honest mistake.

The wife seems to think he lived on Foswell but remember that was 50 years ago

Sorry am not reading any negativity about him. He supported Rangers for years before he joined and when he joined he lived the dream. Not many of our older players haven't said the wrong thing they regret - just like older posters like me wish we hadn't said certain things. Doesn't mean we aren't absolutely in love with the world's greatest team.
