Graeme Souness will return to working for Sky Sports after storming off the set during coverage of the final day of the Premier League.

It was thought a questionable comment about Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah had sparked Sounsess exit.

Souness was suddenly missing after a commercial break as Gary Neville and Thierry Henry took over in the studio.

Before his disappearance, Souness had been telling viewers about a conversation he had with Kelly Cates, the daughter of Kenny Dalglish.

He said: I was working with Kelly and I said to her “Hes like your dad with a sun tan”.

The comment drew criticism from fans on social media, but the Sun claim it is not the reason Souness stormed off the set.
