YOU just can’t keep Sian Massey out of the spotlight.

The female assistant referee, who ran the line at Chesterfield last weekend, will return to Premier League action for the first time since mid-January on Saturday.

The 25-year-old will run the line in Aston Villa’s clash at Blackpool, guided by Rotherham World Cup final referee Howard Webb, who also officiated in the Champions League final last May.

Massey was at the centre of the sexism row involving Andy Gray and Richard Keys, who were signed up by commercial radio station talkSPORT yesterday. The duo will host a three-hour show on Monday through to Friday.

Gray said: “I can’t tell you how excited I am about joining the talkSPORT team. It’s an ideal opportunity for Richard and me to do what we do best, and that’s talk about sport.”

Keys added: “This is the start of something new and exciting for Andy and myself.”
