Graeme Souness is the dictionary definition of an old-school football personality.
The 65-year-old has old school views and is allowed to air them every weekend live on Sky Sports, who pay him a lot of money to talk about Premier League football.
Some people love Souness’s straight-talking analysis, while others find him a bit tedious. He’s what you might describe as a ‘Marmite’ pundit - you either love him or you hate him.
The former Liverpool star is one of football’s iconic hard-men, and the fiery Scot hasn’t lost any of his edge since hanging up his boots.
But he must be a nightmare to work with at times.
Souness was criticised earlier this month after rudely interrupting Alex Scott, asking her what a ‘low-block’ is with a dismissive tone in his voice.
And several weeks later, he’s found himself involved in further controversy after having a go at Sky Sports’ presenter David Jones following Manchester United’s 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Asked if he thought Liverpool had played well against the Red Devils, Souness replied: “I thought they did. I thought they dominated the ball, up until the 18-yard box of Man Utd…”
It was at this point when he stopped what he was saying and said to Jones: “Why are you looking at me like that?
“Do you not agree with me?”
Jones replied: “I was just wondering if they were agreeing with you [pointing to Nemanja Vidic and Gary Neville.”
“No. It was the way you looked,” Souness bit back, before carrying his point.
Carragher could be seen smirking in the direction of Jones afterwards. Clearly they’re all used to Souness being Souness.
Watch the awkward incident here…
Plenty of football fans took to social media following Souness’s latest moment of awkwardness…
If Souness carries on like this, Sky Sports will surely need to have words with him.
Although it’s possible that this exactly what they want Souness to be like on screen.
Jones later tweeted: "Thanks for all your concern ... Graeme Souness and I have sorted out our differences in the car park."News Now - Sport News
