Anthony Peter "Tony" Gale (born 19 November 1959 in Westminster, England) is an English former footballer who is now a regular pundit on Soccer Saturday. He also contributes a column for the British tabloid newspaper, The Sun.

In his playing career he was a defender, with long-term spells at Fulham and West Ham United, contentiously being sent-off, by referee Keith Hackett, in the 1991 FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest for a foul on Gary Crosby. This was seen by West Ham fans as an unfair dismissal, and as the reason for their 4-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest in that game and ending their chances of a first FA Cup final since 1980 - it would be another 26 years before they reached the final.

After leaving West Ham, he had a single season with Blackburn Rovers, helping them win the 1994-95 Premier League title.

Gale has been heard commentating on Premier League games for Premier League Productions, a venture of IMG Sports Media who produce, package and broadcast the live production of games for the Premier League for international broadcasters.

Gale has also contributed a regular column for West Ham's official website,, and is Director of Football at Ryman League One South side, Walton Casuals.
