Alan Shearer was left feeling mightily awkward after running through his top 10 pundits with BBC colleague Micah Richards the other day.
The pair appeared on the Match of the Day podcast, hosted by Gary Lineker, and were tasked with naming their favourite TV pundits from one to 10, and were allowed to include themselves in the list.
Richards kicked things off, naming Jimmy Hill 10th, himself ninth, Rio Ferdinand eighth, Alan Hansen seventh and Graeme Souness sixth. After realising he was going to make the Manchester City icon's top five, Shearer joked: "I'm feeling guilty now."

The reason why became clear once Shearer starting running through his list. "Micah, ten," he said, as the trio fell about laughing.
Lineker then chimed in, joking: "I wouldn't have put you ten. I would not have put you ten Micah. I wouldn't done that to you Micah… I wouldn't have had you in the list."
Shearer continued, naming Roy Keane in ninth, Jamie Carragher in eighth, himself in seventh, Jimmy Hill in sixth, Alan Hansen fifth, Rio Ferdinand fourth and a three, two, one of Gary Neville, Graeme Souness and Ian Wright.

Completing Richards' list was Ian Wright in fifth, Roy Keane in fourth, Gary Neville in third, Alan Shearer in second and Jamie Carragher in first, though he relegated Shearer to fifth once he found out where the Newcastle legend had place him in his list.
The lists were created as part of BBC's Top 10 series, where they ask former pros to rank individuals in certain sporting categories from 10 to one.
