Jack Grealish has hit back at Graeme Souness and accused the pundit of having an agenda against him.
And the England ace has told Souness he is more worried about criticism from his mum than anything he has to say.
Souness has been highly critical of the form of Grealish and claims the 27-year-old has been a flop since joining Manchester City in a British record £100m deal in 2021.

Grealish admits he can do better and has to improve, but is convinced the former Scotland and Liverpool legend is picking on him for the sake of it.
Grealish said: "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.
Is Grealish right to call out Souness? Let us know in the comments section
"I know within myself, I always watch my games back and I am very critical of myself. I know that there were games, especially in the second half of last season, where I wasn't at my best at all.
"Nowadays, people have so much to say, whether that be on social media or pundits and stuff like that. It's just part and parcel of the game.
"It's in my opinion the biggest sport in the world and everyone wants to talk about it, whether it is good or bad, so you just have to go with the flow really.
"I've had to learn to deal with it. It's more if someone was saying it like my mum or my dad or someone, I'd listen a lot more."
