From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Michael Gray (born August 3, 1974 in Sunderland, England) is an English football player who is currently on loan to Leeds United F.C. from Blackburn Rovers F.C., he is a defender.

An experienced player, he started his career for Sunderland at the beginning of the 1992/93 season. It wasn't until 1998 he came to the fore, however, missing a penalty for the team which would have taken them into the Premiership. He made his international debut for England against Hungary on April 28, 1999 and also played against Sweden and Bulgaria before the season saw out.

However, as his next season was plagued by injury, he failed to make the cut for Euro 2000. This didn't affect his domestic team's form, however, as they finished in seventh place for two consecutive seasons.

In the 2001/02 season, Sunderland struggled, and with their dip in form came a dip in form for Gray, and for the next two seasons, he was constantly rumoured to be moving elsewhere. He finally did on September 1, 2003, on loan to Celtic F.C. for four months. However, having failed to make an impact, and generally finding himself out of the squad lists, he moved to Blackburn Rovers F.C. on January 1 of the following year.

He made his Blackburn debut against Chelsea F.C. in a 3-2 defeat, but constantly performed well for the team as they avoided relegation.

Michael Gray is also the name of a record DJ, famous for his UK Top 10 hit "The Weekend".
