Chants aimed at female referee in Premier League

BY foxsports • February 12, 2011

Fans have aimed chants at assistant referee Sian Massey in her return to the Premier League after being the subject of a sexism scandal.

Two soccer broadcasters left British TV station Sky Sports last month after making disparaging off-air remarks about Massey before a Liverpool match against Wolverhampton.

Massey made a low-key return to the field last weekend for a fourth-tier match.

But she returned to the topflight on Saturday to work alongside World Cup final referee Howard Webb at Blackpool's match against Aston Villa.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway said he ''didn't like some of the shouts.'' They included, ''There's only one Andy Gray.''

Gray was fired by Sky, while colleague Richard Keys quit.
