Never seen that clip before. Absolutely tremendous stuff. Took no shit from anybody, hard as nails and could play a wee bit too.

Big Edinburgh poof. Wouldn't have lasted five minutes in Glasgow under 13's league in the 60's and 70's :p

Brilliant stuff. Best story ever when he was with Sampdoria playing against alleged Argentinian hard man Daniel Passarella. During the match Passarella was doing the throat cutting gestures etc. When the final whistle went Souness started walking quicker and quicker towards him. But Passerella seen him and was walking quicker than Souness and broke into a run down the tunnel and locked himself in the dressing room with the Magnificent Bastard banging on the door.:D

I believe he was signed by Liverpool after their match against Middlesboro when he had Jimmy Case (I think) on the floor and was standing over him shaking his fist. Case was a Liverpool hardman in those days if I recall.

There was some Romanian team(i think) playing Liverpool in Europe and their hardman had told everyone what he was going to do to Souness. The hardman was taken off the pitch with a broken jaw!

Edit: Dinamo Bucharest was the team, it's on youtube just search Souness breaks jaw

I always remember Saint and greivesy showing some of his.Challenges he did every so called hard man in football.The butcher of bilbao butraguena, steilika, the German mad man, Ray Wilkins, the Welsh guy can't remember his name studs right in the bass, and when with Sampdoria he battered the Italian Gentile in the tunnel. He was my hero before he came and by fucckkk hes still the man
Alpha Male +, the way science is now he could do a piss and they could make a superhuman from the DNA he pisses out

He was absolute nails and a player into the bargain as well. Would never work in today's whimpy world of football but he was tremendous to watch back in the day.

Could pass, shoot, run with the ball, tackle like %^*& and boot folk 10 feet in the air and have a 10 min argument about why it was acceptable to do so.

I love Souness, but to be honest, he was a dirty bastard.
Don't get me wrong, he could play sublime football when he wanted to, but a player who goes out to injure other players is the lowest of the low, something he did many times.
