Ando has a new Euro vision!
GARY ANDERSON won his first ranking title for three years and is ready to be a hit with his new Euro vision!
The Flying Scotsman beat Krzysztof Ratajski 8-5 to win Players Championship 8 in Hildesheim.
Ando, 52, admitted that he is finding the long days tiring but is now getting back to his best form.
Anderson needs to keep winning to push him back up the world rankings and qualify for events such as the World Matchplay and Grand Slam.
But he added: “If I don’t do it, I don’t do it. I ain’t going to lose sleep over it.
“I’d like to win the Grand Slam, that’s about it. I’ve spent 28, 29 years of my life out of a suitcase. I like being at home.
“You had a choice, you wrote me off. I’m just here to give you a sore head and p*** you off, which I’m doing quite well to be honest.”
Anderson had fallen to World No.22 and has even returned to the Euro Tours in a bid to roar back up the Order of Merit.
He added: “When I was in the Premier League, I wasn’t travelling being away five, six days a week.
“I’ve got young kids, I missed my other kids because I was away all the time. This time I ain’t doing it.
“Now I’ve got a week at home, do the Euro Tours and get back home.
“I’ve enjoyed this weekend. Two flights and taxis. But I’m here with young Jamie Clark.
“I’m playing well and I’m practising. I’m struggling with the long days, this is 10 in the morning until whatever time it is now. I was in bed at 9pm but I’m still bloody knackered!
“It’s been hard, it’s been something I’ve not wanted to. My wife Rachel has chucked me out of the house to play darts.
“I usually come here and I’ve got a face like fizz because I’ve had two flights and a taxi. Same again Wednesday when I go home.”
