Lineker was pulled from the show by the BBC after he refused to address the ongoing row over his inflammatory tweets comparing the government’s new Illegal Migration Bill to 1930s Nazi Germany, which saw him taken off air.

He has remained tight-lipped about the incident ever since, though the presenter has received an outpour of support.

Wright led the way by informing BBC of his decision not to take part in Match of the Day on Friday.

The likes of Shearer, Micah Richards and Alex Scott followed suit, with presenters Mark Chapman and Colin Murray also refusing to fill in for Lineker.

But Shearer and Wright have got their Prem fix this weekend by providing analysis for Premier League TV for their coverage of three matches today, including Arsenal vs Fulham.

Shearer shared a photo of himself in the studio alongside Wright and presenter Jules Breach.

He captioned the post: “Hellllooooo @IanWright0!! @premierleague tv today with @julesbreach and Wrighty!!!”

Wright even threatened to quit MOTD for good over the BBC’s treatment of pal Lineker.


He said: “That is the distraction and let me tell you something, if the BBC do get rid of Gary Lineker I am out.

“I am gone, I am not staying there. On his own platform, he should be able to say what he wants to say.

“Gary Lineker he says stuff on everything and it’s almost like this one has missed everybody simply because he says so much but this is so right what he is saying. I have spoken to Gary, I am behind him.”
