TV3 snap up one of RTE's most popular pundits for Champions League campaign

Former Liverpool and Scotland star Graeme Souness will join TV3’s Champions League analysis team.

Souness is currently a Sky Sports pundit and previously worked with RTE for a number of years, enjoying many bristling and barbed discussions with Eamon Dunphy in particular, including this memorable exchange:

"You don’t know what you’re talking about."

"Where did you manage?

"I didn’t manage anywhere. I managed to stay alive for 63 and a half years, baby."

Souness has been described by Roy Keane as "the best pundit on TV". 

He joins the likes of Gaizka Mendieta, Luis Garcia and Neil Lennon, who have all featured in TV3’s punditry team so far this season, alongside regular analyst Brian Kerr and host Tommy Martin.

Ahead of the launch of its Rugby World Cup coverage, TV3 also announced former Ireland international Malcolm O’Kelly will be among the pundits, joining Peter Stringer, Keith Wood and Shane Jennings.

The channel also continued its commitment to UFC coverage, including UFC Fight Night Dublin and the anticipated UFC featherweight unification bout between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo.
