Graeme James Souness (born 6 May 1953) is a retired Scottish professional football player and manager, who played as a midfielder.

Souness was the captain of the successful Liverpool team of the early 1980s, player/manager of Rangers in the late 1980s and captain of the Scottish national team. He also played for Tottenham Hotspur, Middlesbrough and Sampdoria.

His managerial career began when he joined Rangers, leading them to three Scottish titles and four league cups, before joining Liverpool as manager. He went on to become manager of Galatasaray, Southampton, Torino, Benfica, Blackburn Rovers, and Newcastle United.

 

Liverpool

Furthermore, his playing career is best remembered for his seven seasons at Liverpool; where he won five League Championships, three European Cups and four League Cups.

Souness’ time at Anfield began in January 1978 as a replacement for veteran Ian Callaghan. After winning his first European Cup in 1977, Liverpool manager Bob Paisley sought reinforcements by signing three Scottish players; all of whom were to contribute substantially to further success. Central defender Alan Hansen arrived from Partick Thistle for £110,000. Kenny Dalglish – an established Scottish international – signed from Celtic for a then British record fee of £440,000. Besides, Souness formed the final part of the Scottish triumvirate; leaving Middlesbrough in acrimonious circumstances for a club-record fee of £350,000 on 10 January 1978.

Liverpool debut came in a 1–0 league victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on 14 January 1978. His first goal – a volley from just inside the penalty box; eventually awarded fans’ goal of the season – came in a 3–1 win over bitter rivals Manchester United at Anfield on 25 February 1978.

Also, Souness played a critical role in Liverpool’s retention of the European Cup against FC Bruges in 1978 at Wembley Stadium, providing the pass for Kenny Dalglish to score the match’s only goal.

Sadly his Liverpool career ended in 1984 after 358 appearances and 56 goals.
