Graeme Souness fires shot at Gary Neville just days after leaving Sky Sports
| Last updated
Graeme Souness has aimed a dig at Gary Neville after leaving Sky Sports last weekend.
On Sunday, after the dramatic Premier League between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, Sky Sports announced that Souness will leave the company after 15 years of service.
During his time on Sky Sports, Souness was often involved in the big matches in the Premier League and Champions League.
Days after his departure, he has now fired shots at his former colleague Neville.
Speaking on Up Front With Simon Jordan, Souness said: “I like listening to Roy. I think the Chuckle Brothers, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher can be entertaining. It makes me chuckle anyway. He fights every cause going.
“I've got to choose my words. I think he does overstep the mark with some of his crusades that he goes on. Because no one is really interested in listening to him on certain subjects.”
Former Manchester United defender Neville has since hit back at both Souness and Simon Jordan.
He wrote on Twitter: “Are their two Graeme Souness’s? That isn’t the one I spoke to on Sunday! Jordan is like Boris. Will take everyone down with him.”

Whilst Jamie Carragher simply tweeted a GIF of the Chuckle Brothers.
Speaking about his Sky Sports departure, Souness said: “I’m going to miss you guys, the guys behind the scenes, our make-up girl, I’ll miss you all. You know, for me, I decided that football management wasn’t for me any more. I had the wrong temperament for it, the wrong personality.
“And then I was given the opportunity to do this and it’s been magnificent. It’s just been the most fantastic time for me, because I love football, I care about football and I worry about it going forward.”
He added: “But in Sky’s hands it’s in good hands, safe hands, and I think over the years we’ve created a Premier League with great detail and I think we look after football very well. But for me personally, I’ve got the buzz of live football coming to some fantastic games.”
