Gary Lineker destroys Alan Shearer with savage comment during live BBC broadcast

Gary Lineker destroys Alan Shearer with savage comment during live BBC broadcast

Gary Lineker poked fun at Alan Shearer live on air.

Gary Lineker delivered a savage dig at Alan Shearer during BBC's live broadcast of the Netherlands vs. Romania at Euro 2024.

The BBC aired the Netherlands vs. Romania in the UK, with Alex Scott and Ashley Williams joining Lineker and Shearer in the studio.

The Dutch made light work of Romania, beating them 3-0 in Munich to secure a spot in the next round of the tournament.

Romania had their moments but failed to get past Ronald Koeman's team as Cody Gakpo once again starred for his side, scoring the opener before Donyell Malen bagged a brace.

But Romania's Andrei Rațiu caught the attention of the studio as he sported blue hair.

Rațiu's funky hair colour was one of the topics of conversations before the game, with Shearer taking a swipe at Lineker.

The Newcastle United legend said: "Bit of a different blue rinse to yours, isn’t it, Gaz?"

To which the former Leicester City forward brutally replied: "I’ve got no answer to that, Alan. At least I’ve got something to rinse."

Lineker and Shearer will be on for England's next game against Switzerland and ahead of their quarter-final clash, former Swiss international Ramon Vega has taunted the pair of former internationals.

"I would love to be in the studio with those guys, both Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer, just to see their faces," he said.

"I’ve been following their comments and what they have been saying throughout the tournament and let’s see what happens now.

"We believe we will win but I’ll bring the best Swiss cheese, the finest raclette cheese, and they can eat that when Switzerland win. I’ll happily eat fish and chips if England win – but, don’t worry, it won’t come to that!"

Vega, formerly of Tottenham and Watford, added: "England have big players. They have the best league in the world. Yet we know we can do it. We know we can beat England.

"We beat the holders, Italy, in the last round. We knocked out France in the last Euros. We’ve been consistent for so many years.

"Everyone talks about Italy being poor that day. Why is that? I’ll tell you why; we made them look bad. We outplayed them. It was down to us. Not them."
