Jack Grealish has shrugged his shoulders at the constant criticism he receives from Graeme Souness.
The £100m midfielder is the golden boy of the England support, showing in flashes what he can do but never quite a regular in Gareth Southgate’s side.
Souness increasingly comes over as a jealous and grumpy old man, needing to make more and more noise to retain some relevance and a media profile now that he is approaching his 70th birthday.
?? “He [Graeme Souness] has a lot of stuff to say, I don’t know what it is or what problem he’s got. When I signed for [Man] City I knew it wasn’t going to be all laughs unless I started the way Erling Haaland did.”

I don’t know what his problem is with me. He always says stuff about me. Listen, he was obviously a great player and won a lot but I don’t know what it is with what he says about me or what problem he has got. I know my own ability.
I know before that he (Souness) used to say a lot of stuff about me not moving the ball quicker but when I’m playing for a manager like Pep Guardiola and he’s telling me to keep the ball as much as I can and have the balls to take it everywhere, then that is what I will try to do.
