Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness is reportedly set to retire from Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage at the end of the season, as he was absent during Jurgen Klopp’s side 1-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday and has featured less this campaign.
The Athletic claim that Souness, who had signed three-year contracts previously, extended his deal by just one year last summer and is expected to take a step back at the end of the current season.
The ex-Liverpool and Rangers man joined talkSPORT in August and has been a regular alongside former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan and broadcaster Jim White on the radio show every Monday.
Souness, 69, has been a pundit on Sky Sports for several years and has formed an entertaining duo with former Manchester City defender Micah Richards as a fixture of Sky’s Super Sunday show where he has regularly featured alongside Roy Keane, Jamie Redknapp, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.
Sky have made major changes on their pundits in the last few years, with Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas leaving Soccer Saturday and host Jeff Stelling was set to join them but he made a U-turn and has agreed to stay on the show for the 2022/23 season.
Souness has spent 16 years as a Sky pundit, and recently enjoyed a back-and-forth with Manchester City star Jack Grealish which culminated in the Scot offering to go on a night out with the England international.
