Graeme Souness aims brutal dig at Gary Neville following Sky Sports pundit role exit

Graeme Souness has fired a parting shot at former Sky Sports colleague Gary Neville after it was announced that the Liverpool legend would be leaving his punditry post with the broadcaster.

Speaking about his time with Sky on the Up Front With Simon Jordan podcast, Souness said: "I like listening to Roy (Keane). I think the Chuckle Brothers, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher can be entertaining. It makes me chuckle anyway. He fights every cause going.

"I've got to choose my words. I think he (Neville) does overstep the mark with some of his crusades that he goes on. Because no one is really interested in listening to him on certain subjects."

Neville then fired back on Twitter, clearly bemused by Souness' comments whilst comparing Jordan to former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The Manchester United hero wrote: "Are their two Graeme Souness’s? That isn’t the one I spoke to on Sunday!

"Jordan is like Boris. Will take everyone down with him."

Neville has grabbed many headlines this season, most notably for his consistent downplaying of Arsenal's Premier League title challenge, much to the annoyance of the Gunners' faithful.

Despite leading the league for the majority of the season, the former United right-back was never convinced that Mikel Arteta's side would win the title this season, consistently backing Manchester City instead.

Now, City sit one point ahead of the north Londoners in the table despite having played one less league match this term, making them heavy favourites to retain their title yet again.
