Graeme Souness Loses His Temper At Sky Presenter: "Why Are You Looking Like That?"
Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness is never far from controversy but this time it was away from the pitch, following coverage of Manchester United's 0-0 draw against Liverpool.
Souness was in the Sky Sports studio for their coverage of the big game at Old Trafford this afternoon.
And he was positive about his former side's performance despite them failing to really trouble United in an uneventful game.
Asked by presenter Jones if he thought Liverpool had played well, Souness' reply included some stern words and a stern look from the Scot:
"Why are you looking at me like that?" :scream_cat:
Graeme Souness, please don't ever change :joy: pic.twitter.com/AKx0eYC5g4

Here's how the conversation went down:
Souness: "I thought they dominated the ball up until the 18-yard box...why are you looking like that? Do you not agree with me?" he asked.
Jones: "I was just wondering if they agreed with you,"
Souness: "Well, it was the way you looked."
Even I shit myself when he said that and I'm sat at home a hundred odd miles away :joy:

Souness definitely didn't look happy with Jones there, but the presenter was quick to respond on social media.
"Thanks for all your concern ... Graeme Souness and I have sorted out our differences in the car park."

You could understand if Jones and the rest of the panel were perplexed at Souness' take.
Liverpool were very poor in the 0-0 draw, struggling to create anything of note in the final third in a game that United failed to show much quality in either.
24/02 - @ManUtd (A) 1-1
03/03 - @WatfordFC (H)
10/03 - @Everton (A)
"If @LFC get out the end of this week and they're still top of the league, it's a great week."

With the result, Liverpool now lead Manchester City by one point at the top of the English Premier League - failing to take full advantage of their game in hand.
Will Liverpool go on and win the Premier League or will they bottle it?
