Graeme Souness' unusual Rangers fine offence revealed as Ally McCoist waits 30 years to demand his money back

By Liam Bryce

Ally McCoist has revealed his old boss Graeme Souness used to fine Rangers stars for playing golf.

The Ibrox legend revealed Souness had a bugbear for his players spending their spare time on the course - and McCoist was frequently hit in the pocket.

So, imagine his surprise when, on holiday in Portugal this summer, he's asked along for a round by Souness himself.

McCoist laughed as he admitted he finally took his chance to demand the money back, a whole 30 years later.

He told talkSPORT : "Graeme used to fine me. It was a Liverpool thing - he hated the boys playing golf.

"The boys loved a game of golf and he used to fine us for playing.

"So, I'm out in Portugal this summer and who do I bump into? Graeme Souness!

"He said to me: 'You fancy a game of golf?'

"And I said: 'You're right into your golf now, eh?'

"'Aye', he said.

"'Well,' I said. 'Any chance of getting all that money back you used to fine me?'

"He said: 'What do you think?'"
