Andy Gray was born in Glasgow ON THIS DAY in 1955.
He had spells at Dundee United, Aston Villa and Wolves before his ¬£250,000 move to Everton in 1983.

During his Everton career he made 68 appearances and scored 22 goals.
Howard Kendall announced he was to sign Gary Lineker, which lead to the sale of Gray in July 1985 when he moved back to Aston Villa for ¬£150,000.
In a great coincidence Gary Linker was born in Leicester ON THIS DAY in 1960.
