Andy Gray must surely rue the day he thought he would see Premier League football with Charlton and stabbed the Clarets gaffer and club in the back by refusing to wear the shirt with pride in a match against Coventry in order to sign for Charlton!
How times have changed!
Relegated Charlton in League One!
Promoted Burnley in the Premier League!
Very tempting to say, yah boo sucks Andy!
Today's rumour though makes interesting reading
Barnsley are reportedly interested in signing the former Sheffield United, Sunderland, Burnley and Leeds United striker
Gray, now 31 is one of the highest earners at the Valley but now looks likley to move away from Charlton Athletic,presumably because his ego couldn't stomach being in the third tier of English football!
Charlton boss Phil Parkinson has confirmed that an approach has been made by the Tykes.
Speaking to the The South London Press,Parkinson said:
'There's been an enquiry from Barnsley for Andy Gray and we`re in discussions.'
Gray of course used to be a Burnley hero after Steve Cotterill rescued him from obscurity by initially signing him on loan from Sunderland in March 2006 until the end of the season. A permanent move followed when the transfer window reopened in the summer of 2006 with the player signing for around £750,000.
Gray made 60 appearances for the Clarets scoring 25 times, a rate of better than 1 in 3. Then he turned his back on the Clarets for what he thought would be better times. His £1.5 million move to Charlton was finalised after a loan spell in January 2008.
Well he may have been paid ridiculous amounts of money but his form has been poor at the Valley scoring just 9 goals in 43 appearances a rate of about one in five games.
Barnsley? Good Lord Andy, I am sure you will forgive Clarets fans for having a wide grin on their face! You have to laugh
