    Graeme Souness is set to retire from his 16-year punditry career with Sky Sports at the end of the season, according to reports.

    The Liverpool legend agreed a one-year extension to his deal in the summer but has been appearing less often on the broadcaster's Premier League coverage. And The Athletic report he is likely to walk away once his current contract expires.

    It's claimed Souness was "happy" to sign on for only 12 more months with a reduced, set number of appearances for this season.

    The 69-year-old, who is turning 70 next May, is now expected to take a step back from all his duties with Sky after the 2022/23 campaign has concluded.

    The former Reds and Rangers midfielder has been a regular on Sky Sports since first joining in 2006 following the conclusion of his 20-year managerial career, which had ended with a two-year stint at Newcastle United.

    He's also done punditry work for Rangers TV and ITV during that time, as well as transitioning into radio work with talkSPORT this year.

    Souness has often cut a controversial figure in the football community having taken issue with the likes of ex-Manchester United star Paul Pogba and more recently Manchester City ace Jack Grealish.

    Grealish said last month "I don’t know what his problem is with me" after Souness highlighted his performances for Pep Guardiola's side.
