About Graeme Souness

Graeme James Souness is a Scottish former professional football player, manager, and current pundit on Sky Sports. 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 Scotland national team. But he is vegan?!

Is Graeme Souness?

Graeme Souness has revealed he is a vegan to the surprise of football fans.

The former Liverpool midfielder revealed he hasn’t eaten meat for three years during Sky Sports Super Sunday coverage from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The 68-year-old stated his passion for animal welfare was the reason behind his veganism. This took plenty of viewers by surprise, who couldn’t believe what they had heard.

“I think the way we treat animals is despicable, but that’s for another day," he shared. "I’m in the process of having a new house built, I’ve air source heat pumps, I’ve got solar panels, so I’m aware of it, and I’m trying to do my wee bit.”
