Sports Presenter Lashes out at Walcott’s Pink Boots

Theo Walcott

Sky Sports bosses have been left fuming after presenters Richard Keys and Andy Gray were caught out live on air making derogatory remarks about Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.
Keys and Gray were reportedly heard talking over some feeds of Arsenal’s 4-1 defeat in Barcelona on Tuesday.
The Sun reported that at one point during the match, the 21-year-old went to ground, Keys was heard to say on an online stream of the match: “Get up, you stupid little boy.
“You’ve been s***e, son, in your daft pink boots – absolute rubbish.”

His remarks have been likened by fans to the racist outburst of former sports presenter Ron Atkinson when he thought his microphone was switched off.

Referring to the underwhelming performance of the French Chelsea player Marcel Desailly, Atkinson said: “He’s what is known in some schools as a fucking lazy thick n*****. Atkinson was banned by ITV.

A Sky spokesperson said there were, “no technical issues with the audio on the night.”

  1. Likened in what way? Caught thinking they were off air?

    Some may believe that there are comparisons being made with the content of their comments.

    p.s. Gray was dissing his boots, not Keys.
