Security at The Reebok stadium was breached last night as a tired and emotional former Sky Sports presenter stormed into a recording area and leaped before the cameras.
Fortunately the cameras were not going out live as the game was in progress but one image was captured before the man was wrestled to the floor, eventually contained and removed from the premises.
Gray was determined to plead his case to the public. ‘People are too thin skinned these days. I went tae a Jim Davidson corporate recently and when one couple walked oot that wa it. They wa in the minority. Jim didn’t stop and say, ‘I think tha proves I’m no funny, I better stop telling fabulously funny jokes.’ Did he? No. He just carried on. That’s all I want tae do. Carry on. Where’s Richard?’
Polly Richardson the Floor Manager for Sky told The Tavern, ‘I felt someone grab a handful of my bottom and I recognised the grip as being Andy. Before I had a chance to do anything he’d plonked what looked to be a shoulder of scotch in a paper bag on top of a monitor and he was in front of the cameras. It was all quite hairy.’
