Andy Gray and his Rangers colours have certainly come to the fore since he’s been working with BeIN SPORT.
The famous Gers fan, who spent a very forgettable year at the club between 1988 and 1989, certainly enjoys the Gers’ successes on live air.
In the past, Gray has constantly been seen winding up the likes of John Collins after Rangers victories. Lesser restrictions certainly seem to have been placed on his reactions to what goes on in the world of the Old Firm. Partiularly when you compare it to his time on Sky Sports.
That was certainly evident yet again yesterday as the Ibrox side secured a massive win over Cetic. The result took Rangers level with their rivals at the top-of-the-table. Celtic have a game in-hand, but the momentum is now all with Steven Gerrard’s men.
And Gray certainly took the opportunity to remind everyone of the fact yesterday. On a live broadcast ith BeIN, and despite discussing Premier League football, Gray quickly mentioned how Rangers had “beat them well”.

A performance to savour for Rangers fans
Even in this clip, you can hear that Gray has just about lost his voice. It’s undoubtedly come from him screaming at the TV during yesterday’s riveting Old Firm match.
And no wonder too. Rangers produced a performance that each and every fan should be proud of. They didn’t just beat Celtic, they battered them for 90 minutes and never looked like getting anything other than a win.
It was similar to when Rangers went to Parkhead earlier this season and were caned on the day. The turnaround since then, however, has been nothing short of a miracle for Ibrox supporters.
Yesterday’s win symbolised so much to a support that have been starved of Old Firm success for six years in the league.
The challenge for Gerrard now, however, is to make sure yesterday doesn’t become a rarity. There are two more battles with Celtic ahead this season, and Brendan Rodgers will likely tool up well for them in January.
Rangers now must make sure they do the same after what was a historic day for their supporters yesterday.
