MATCH OF THE GAY! Lineker jokes about join­ing Grindr sex site

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

LOVE-SPLIT footie legend Gary Lineker has joked about join­ing a GAY dat­ing web­site.

The Match of the Day host split from wife of six years Danielle, 36, back in Jan­uary.

And de­spite ‘fly­ing solo’, the former Eng­land striker said he won’t be join­ing on­line dat­ing app Tin­der.

But in a bizarre con­fes­sion Gary said that he may con­sider ‘ chang­ing teams’ – and use the pop­u­lar gay dat­ing app Grindr.

He said: “I’m not on Tin­der, maybe I should con­sider Grindr?” SIN­GLE: Gary items out for me.”

The former Le­ices­ter player hit the head­lines when he vowed to present the BBC One footie show in his un­der­pants if the Foxes won the Premier League ti­tle this sea­son.

And Le­ices­ter City walked away with the ti­tle for the first time in their 130-year his­tory last week.

Lineker said last week: “In De­cem­ber I cat­e­gor­i­cally knew there was zero chance that Le­ices­ter would win. I’m in good shape. For an old bas­tard. I’ll prob­a­bly work out for the two weeks be­fore­hand very hard.”

But in the first show since the win, Gary dis­ap­pointed fans by ap­pear­ing in front of the cam­eras fully clothed.

Twit­ter user Eleanor Guerin posted: “Mum’s dead dis­ap­pointed Gary Lineker didn’t come out in his pants on Match of the Day.”

But the BBC later told view­ers that the nude vow will be car­ried out on the first day of next sea­son.
