In news that will surprise absolutely no one – especially those who've seen the way he looks at Thierry Henry – angry Scottish pundit Graeme Souness has revealed that he voted for Brexit in last June's referendum.

This being Souness, of course, he also preceded the admission with a bizarre, Stone Age rant about dainty Dutch football.

Speaking on Irish football show TV3 on Tuesday night after Leicester were knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid, Souness launched to the defence of 'angry' English football.

"English football is the most popular game in the world to watch because it's generally end-to-end with things happening," Souness said.

"What we can't have - and I'll give you another example - I live down on the south coast of England and I went to watch Bournemouth play Swansea City three weeks ago.

"I came away with my 17-year-old son saying 'I didn't enjoy that.'

"It was like watching Dutch game of football, lots of nice little, pretty technique with little passes. There was no fire. There was nobody smashing into anyone.

"There was no real anger in the game. It was just about trying to outpass each other and just maybe they'd get a chance at the end of it."

Souness' no-nonsense, traditionalist diatribe led the host Tommy Martin to joke about the Scotsman voting for Brexit.

"I certainly did."

Of course you did, Graeme. Of course you did.
