Graeme Souness apologised for ‘storming out’ of Sky Sports studio after row

Graeme Souness was once forced to 'apologise' for storming out of the Sky Sports studio to leave baffled viewers asking 'where did he go?' after a break on the final day of the season.

The Liverpool icon often splits opinion with his strong view on Premier League action, but one of his feuds was actually between himself and the production team.

Back in 2018, the now 69-year-old found himself in a disagreement with behind the scenes staff while covering an Anfield Premier League game with Gary Neville and Thierry Henry alongside presenter Kelly Cates.

According to The Sun, Souness stormed out of the studio in anger having been told that he only had a few seconds to finish his point before an advert break.

Souness returned after the broadcast and is said to have apologised to Sky producers for his unexpected behaviour.

One viewer wrote on Twitter at the time: "Where did Graeme Souness go?"

The incident didn't sour his relationship with the broadcaster, going on to make regular appearances until now when the news of his impending retirement broke.

Souness has been a regular in the world of punditry since leaving his most recent managerial role at Newcastle back in 2006, recently working alongside the likes of Roy Keane, Micah Richards and Jamie Redknapp.

Souness has also been known for his criticism of former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and more recently Manchester City forward Jack Grealish.

Grealish said of Souness in September: "I don't know what his problem is with me. He always says stuff about me, but I try not to read a lot of it.

"It is difficult when he's on Sky Sports and it's everywhere around the training ground at times.

"Listen, he was obviously a great player and won a lot, but I don't know what it is with what he says about me, or what problem he's got."
