Graeme Souness is scary at the best of times, the man has cutting eyes and a terrifying personality, so it would be best advised not to give Liverpool a tough cup draw.
After the Reds’ 3-1 success against Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup quarter final, Souness picked his old side out of the hat leaving former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp to pick between Chelsea, Tottenham and Sheffield United.
Redknapp appeared to forget that if you’re stood close enough to smell Souness’ aftershave, don’t do anything wrong, but he pulled Chelsea out of the hat, drawing a death stare from the Scotsman.
It looked as though Redknapp could feel Souness staring into his soul as he sheepishly took a step back and wisely avoided eye contact the 61-year-old.
The former Newcastle manager is no stranger to confrontation, after Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer scrapped on the pitch in April 2005, Souness offered to fight both of them, unsurprisingly neither player took him up on the offer.

If there was ever any doubt as to Souness’ bravery, or insanity take your pick, the former Galatasaray manager ran on to the pitch and planted a Gala flag in the centre circle after a derby win against Fenerbahce.
Liverpool’s win against Bournemouth was just their third win in 11 matches and the side are struggling in the Premier League, they are 11th in the league with 21 points from 16 games, the team’s worst start to a season in 50 years.
Chelsea meanwhile have suffered just one defeat all season and sit three points clear at the top of the table.
