SEXISTPUNDITGATE: Andy Gray’s strip for young boys REVEALED!

This Andy Gray sexism thing – so I bought some old comics recently, the first few editions of DC Thomson’s early eighties boys’ paper Buddy, issue one of which came out thirty years ago, on 14 February 1981.

One of the strips is the ‘Super Personality Series’, a two page cartoon biography of a famous person (Sting, Kenny Dalglish, Kevin Keegan, Jimmy Savile, Barry Sheene – you get the picture); and in the first issue who should it be but Andy Gray, following him from his schooldays (“I must get my four Highers. A good education could be a help in later years”) through to Cup Final success in 1980.

    Just have to hope there’s a scandal brewing about Jimmy Savile, Kenny Dalglish, Kevin Keegan, Barry Sheene or Sting…
