Life in the lens

The path from player to pundit is well-trodden but not many if any have taken to it with the vim, vigour and success that Gary has, turning himself into arguably the country’s leading pundit on all things football.

Typical of Gary not to stop there, his experience in front of and behind the cameras at Sky Sports gave him the urge to create his own programmes, resulting in the co-founding of his own Production Company, Buzz 16 and several award-winning programmes, watched by millions of people worldwide.

Sky Sports

Gary joined Sky Sports in 2011 following his retirement from playing football and after a famously nervous start interviewing Roberto Mancini, built himself into a multiple award winning broadcaster.

The Overlap

The Overlap is the place to Gary interview some of the biggest names in sport and beyond. Productions include the Overlap YouTube channel and the Overlap Live.


Gary sits down and interviews former teammates and some of his most famous opposition, to reflect and provide insight on their career, their most memorable matches and those moments of magic and sometimes, of madness.

from Gary

The Overlap: Alan Shearer

My full interview with Alan Shearer is here. We went for a walk around Newcastle, from the Docklands to St James’ Park. We chat around growing up in Newcastle, to then move away to Southampton at such a young age

The Overlap: Steven Gerrard

My full interview with Aston Villa manager and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is here. Steven tells me about how he became a manager, with Klopp giving him the u18s to manage at Liverpool.

The Overlap: Declan Rice

I am so happy to share my full interview with Declan with you all. Easily the most switched-on 23-year-old I‘ve ever talked to. We chat about his hometown, Chelsea, signing for West Ham, losing to Italy with England and so much more.

The Overlap: Tyson Fury

My full interview with Tyson Fury is out now - I hope you all enjoy it. We discuss why he lives in Morecambe, his childhood and how much family means to him.
