Graeme Souness stormed off the set of Sky Sports during an ad break of a live broadcast of Liverpool’s game against Brighton.

Souness was on punditry duty for his former club’s 4-0 victory over Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.

The former Liverpool captain and manager is said to have stormed off the set during an ad break after constant interruptions.

According to the Daily Mail, Souness was overheard saying: “I don’t need this. That’s four times today you have shut me up.”

Souness was ‘annoyed’ at having been told by the production team to wrap up his thoughts quickly during his analysis.

He was replaced by co-commentator Gary Neville during the ad break, and has since apologised for failing to disguise his ‘anger’.

“Graeme reacted badly to a directive to wrap up his comments before an ad break,” said a Sky spokesperson. “But he has been in touch with the production team to apologise.”
