‘No wonder Sky sacked this bitter twisted pr**k’ ‘Did he forget his EBT?’ ‘Knee bending house jock’ The truth about Souness

In his desperation to appear relevant Graeme Souness has doubled down on his contempt for Callum McGregor.

Explaining his ‘Celtic captain’ comment during Scotland’s 5-1 defeat from Germany Souness claimed that he had forgotten McGregor’s name but that he was a good little player.

That sort of comment earns uber-staunch points on Ibrox message boards but shows up the depths that the former Newcastle boss has sunk to since he concluded the deal to sign Jean-Alain Boumsong.

Once upon a time Souness was a big hitter, a mover and shaker on board the EPL gravy train. After the Lord Stevens Report he had to settle for life as a pundit but in 2023 Sky Sports realised that it was time to ditch the dinosaur who had little connection to their audience.

Since then it has been a depressing diet of TalkSPORT and the Daily Mail for Souness, his appearance on ITV’s coverage of the European Championships hasn’t been followed up with Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Ian Wright their preferred pundits.

During his pomp at Sky Sports Souness barely mentioned Rangers or Charles Green’s 2012 Tribute Act, it wouldn’t have helped his image as he played the EPL audience and milked the paydays.

Now in his seventies Q and A sessions with elderly bears is the target for Souness who spent less than five years at Ibrox before abandoning ship for a disastrous spell in charge of Liverpool.

Significantly Souness introduced his good friend Dave Murray to Rangers, in November 1988 the Edinburgh based business man spent £6m on a takeover, 23 years later he accepted a pound coin to get rid with administration soon followed by liquidation.

Celtic fans that remember the Souness and Murray years revel in the pain, hardship and misery that is their legacy for loyal bears.

There wasn’t a sniff of European success during their time at Ibrox as Steau Bucharest, Levski Sofia and Red Star Belgrade destroyed their hopes of wiping the Lisbon Lions from the record books.

Other than claiming that he was duped by a former billionaire from Motherwell, Murray has kept a low profile since he left Ibrox, the issues are to raw and recent for even the Gullible & Deluded to overlook.

Souness is a different matter, since the death of Walter Smith he has taken on iconic status among bears as they recall a glorious spell when the letters E, B, T and H, M, R, C meant next to nothing to them.

The legacy of Souness and Murray was present at Hampden last month as the good little player that captains Celtic lifted the club’s 118th trophy.

McGregor has been vital to five treble successes with Celtic winning 19 of the last 24 domestic trophies- the sort of success rate that Souness never got near during his one and only spell in Scottish football.
