AN “upset” Alan Shearer has broken his silence on Gary Lineker’s tweet row after pulling out of Match of The Day.

The teammate and co-host is back with Lineker, 62, this evening on the BBC to bring viewers live coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final between Manchester City and Burnley.

Gary Lineker returns to TV to host the FA Cup coverageBBC Shearer told how ‘upset’ he was about not being on last week’s show

The pundit opened the show saying how “it’s great to be here” after he was slammed for a tweet last week before being suspended.

And friend Shearer today expressed how “upset” he was to have missed out on the show after he stood by Lineker alongside Ian Wright.

He said: “I want to say how upset we were that all the audiences missed out on last weekend.

“It was a really difficult situation for all concerned.

“For no fault of their own some great people in TV and radio were put in an impossible situation.

“It’s good to get back to some sort of normality and talk about football.”

Lineker responded: “I echo those sentiments.”

The BBC’s highest-paid presenter, on £1.35million a year was blasted for his criticism of Suella Braverman’s migrant boats plan.

He hit out at the Illegal Migration Bill, which bans people who arrive on small boats from settling in Britain, on Twitter.

Lineker wrote: “This is just an immeasurably cruel policy directed at the most vulnerable people in language that is not dissimilar to that used by Germany in the ’30s, and I’m out of order?”

The bill will see migrants detained and removed to their home country, or a safe third state within 28 days.

Tory MPs blasted the tweet as “foul, ill-conceived and disgraceful”, while Downing Street said his language was “not acceptable and disappointing to see”.

Energy secretary Grant Shapps wrote on Twitter: “As a Jewish cabinet minister I need no lessons about 1930s Germany from Gary Lineker.

“Like Gary, I am hosting refugees in my own home, but unlike Gary, I do not believe it is either right or moral to tolerate criminal gangs trafficking vulnerable people across the channel.”

Home secretary Suella Braverman branded the TV presenter’s comments “irresponsible” and immigration minister Robert Jenrick said he was “out of step with the British public”.

But the BBC later confirmed Lineker WILL return to the channel in an embarrassing climbdown 72 hours later.

Director General Tim Davie apologised for the “difficult period” for staff, presenters and audiences after his embarrassing climbdown.

Lineker’s failure to say sorry himself also attracted criticism.

He today marked his return to the popular TV show by tweeting a picture of him and teammates Shearer and Micah Richards.

The smiling pic of the trio comes minutes after Lineker posted a selfie with the caption: “Ah the joys of being allowed to stick to football.”
