Souness was a combative if not quite frankly scary Scottish midfielder who won an obscene amount of trophies, domestic & European.
Graeme's most successful spell as a player though came with a £350,000 transfer to Liverpool in 1978 where he became part of the Liverpool side that was dominant throughout the eighties, winning the championship five times, three European Cups medals and four League Cup medals. Souness was the archetypal dominant midfielder, fearsome in the tackle, great passer, a leader of men and scorer of some terrific goals. He was one of Bob Paisley's majestic trio of Scottish captures, with Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen and when only five months into his Anfield career, he supplied the pass at Wembley for his room-mate Dalglish to score the goal that beat Bruges to retain the European Cup. In general during his Anfield career the Scotland captain responded brilliantly to Paisley's demand to curb his explosive temperament and he became a midfielder of immense stature.
