London, Mar.8 (ANI): Shamed sports pundit Andy Gray has revealed he considered committing suicide after a sexism scandal led to him being sacked from Sky Sports.
The former TV personality, who was axed for suggesting a lineswoman didn't know the offside rule and asking a female presenter to tuck a microphone into his trousers, said he remains haunted by the furore and even considered taking his life.
Gray, who was earning 1.7 million pounds a year at Sky, is now forced to get by on 150,000 pounds, and last year, put his four million pound Warwickshire mansion up for sale, the Daily Mail reports.
Asked if he'd considered suicide, Gray, who was sacked along with co-host Richard Keys, said: "Yes. I would be lying if I said I didn't."
"It happened on a Saturday morning. I got a call on Monday from Andy Melvin (Deputy Head of Sky Sports) just telling us "Don't come in today for Monday night football. It escalated from there for some reason, I've no idea why,"
Gray said, while insisting that his remarks regarding Massey and Jackson were "light-hearted quips".
He added: "I do not see myself as sexist. Not in a million years. I have four daughters and I was brought up by a wonderful mother on her own. She's 91 and is distraught about what happened."
Gray and his colleague Richard Keys have returned to the media, working for radio station talkSPORT. They have also cashed in on their notoriety by touting themselves as after-dinner speakers under the catchline 'Andy Gray and Richard Keys Smash it!' (ANI)
