HomeSky SportsKeys and Gray set to go to Al Jazeera TV?

It has been reported Sky Sports presenters Richard Keys and Andy Gray are set to join the Al Jazeera network following Gray’s dismissal and Keys’ resignation. Both were accused of making sexist comments towards a British female referee during a football match last week. The duo had made offensive comments against referee Sian Massey and West Ham United executive Karren Brady.

Following the controversy, Sky Sports had sacked Andy Gray, their primary football pundit and a former Scottish footballer, from his 1.7 million pounds-a-year job after a tape had emerged of his sexist behaviour.

Keys resigned from his 500,000 pounds-a-year job after admitting that he had too behaved in a ‘prehistoric’ way towards women.

According to the Daily Mail, both are now close to joining Al Jazeera TV. Keys is expected to reach in Qatar today for talks with the broadcaster over his appointment.

“Richard is out there at the moment. It is fair to say there is interest on Al Jazeera’s part. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility – they both have friends in Doha,” the paper quoted a source, as saying.
