FANS are claiming that ex-Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher changed his accent during an interview.
The 66-year-old was a top-flight official for 12 years between 1992 and 2007.
He now regularly appears on Sky Sports to discuss refereeing decisions.
But viewers were left surprised by his latest interview.
Gallagher normally talks with far less of an Irish accent than when he spoke about the abuse from Jose Mourinho and fans that Anthony Taylor suffered after the Europa league final.
It left many believing when he returns to his homeland he acts more Irish.

One fan said: "It is mad how he drops it for Sky."
Another added: "This has my mind blown"
A third reacted, citing what Gallagher was wearing: "Amazing what a hat with a shamrock on can do to you."
Many compared his accent twist to when Steve McClaren hilariously spoke English with a Dutch accent soon after taking the FC Twente job.
