On Sunday afternoon Sky Sports announced that Graeme Souness would retire from punditry duty with the channel. Souness' last ever show was the thrilling clash between Liverpool and Spurs and after 15 years with Sky, it was confirmed that he would no longer be working as a pundit.

Souness' qualities as a pundit does cause a divide between football fans but there's no doubt that watching some of the Premier League's biggest games without the former Liverpool man on the screen will take some getting used to

One of Graeme Souness' best moments as a pundit came after a video circulated of Kurt Zouma kicking and striking his cat on social media. The French defender was at the centre of a storm for a couple of months and after being widely condemned for the incident, he was fined £250,000 by his club.


Souness' analysis of the situation where he says "that cat hadn't done anything wrong" will be remembered as one of his most famous punditry moments.

Graeme Souness slams Kurt Zouma for cat video

Speaking on Sky Sports, the Scot said he would not want to line out in the same side as the 27-year old after viewing that footage.

I've got zero sympathy for him if he's turned up today from his own supporters. West Ham's roots are in the east end of London, salt of the earth people who the vast majority of whom would not be accepting of what they saw on a TikTok.

I've got zero sympathy for him. I've got major problems with this.

For me looking at the video, that cat hadn't done anything wrong. It was picked up and abused for entertainment. It wasn't out of anger, they were laughing. There was a child and he slaps the cat out of the child's arms.

They decide to put it on TikTok, it goes on social media. The fact that they put it out on social media suggests they didn't think there was anything wrong with the behaviour. They thought people would find this funny and amusing.

For me, I wouldn't have played him again this year and if I was still a player, I wouldn't want to play in a team with him.

He certainly didn't hold back.

David Moyes has insisted that his responsibility to select the best team possible, saying the player had apologised for his actions.
