To which Saunders said: “Graeme Souness, £125million. He could do everything. The rules have changed, right? A big part of his game was intimidation and he was hard as nails.

“His attitude Graeme, was, ‘everyone is out to get me, so I’m going to get you first.’

“He thought when he went onto the pitch, that every midfield player was out to do him first, so he bucked first, that was his tactic, but the rules have changed now so he’d have to adjust.

“You’d have to say you can’t have contact in midfield, you can’t be late, you’ve got to stay on your feet, so a big part of his game is gone there.

“But ball striking, passing and actual influence on the game £125m.”
