After a surreal few days, I’m delighted that we have navigated a way through this. I want to thank you all for the incredible support, particularly my colleagues at BBC Sport, for the remarkable show of solidarity. Football is a team game but their backing was overwhelming. I have been presenting sport on the BBC for almost 3 decades and am immeasurably proud to work with the best and fairest broadcaster in the world. I cannot wait to get back in the MOTD chair on Saturday. A final thought: however difficult the last few days have been, it simply doesn’t compare to having to flee your home from persecution or war to seek refuge in a land far away. It’s heartwarming to have seen the empathy towards their plight from so many of you. We remain a country of predominantly tolerant, welcoming and generous people. Thank you. Can't argue with that can you ALBF When he pays his tax bill I might give him a fair hearing. 🤔 No seriously, I happy that the BBC have apologized for him breaking their their own rules. I think the beep are showing great leadership😆 It will be great to see him back on TV giving his 1.4 million pounds a year opinion on…….football. Can’t think of a better way of spending tax payers money. Having said that, I have never watched MOTD once in my life. But I am sure Gary is worth every penny. The world has gone mad. Like I said earlier about climate migration….give it five years. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
