Alex Scott has reportedly pulled out of presenting the BBC’s football Focus on Saturday in support of Gary Lineker. Pundits are boycotting their work this weekend after the Match of the Day host was axed for his comments made on Twitter.
"Kelly has been brought in to replace her for the episode. Alex was in Media City in Manchester preparing for the show yesterday but after seeing the news play out said she did not feel comfortable."
Scott was one of the first pundits to rule herself out of replacing Lineker on Match of the Day, set to air on Saturday night. The ex-Arsenal star posted a tweet of a gif that said: “Nah, not for me,” when speculation was rife that she was amongst the candidates to be called upon by the BBC.
