Liverpool Legend ‘plays’ scandalous celebration that nearly flared riot

After reenacting his controversial flag celebration upon his return to his former club Galatasaray, Graeme Souness was able to relive an unforgettable event from his career.

Following his departure from his position as a pundit for Sky Sports, Souness made the decision to travel to Turkey in order to witness the Istanbul derby between Galatasaray and Fenerbache.

Galatasaray were celebrating their most recent Super Lig triumph, and as part of the festivities, they brought the Liverpool icon back to the club that he led in 1995-1996.

During that season, Souness came dangerously close to inciting a riot when he hoisted a Galatasaray flag in the center of the Fenerbahce pitch following a Turkish Cup final between the two bitter teams.

It was interpreted as a show of vengeance towards a Fenerbache executive who had made fun of the former Scotland international after he had surgery.

Souness related the story of how the celebration came to be as follows: “One of their [Fenerbahce’s] vice-presidents had said, ‘what are Galatasaray doing signing a cripple?'” Souness said that the Fenerbahce vice president was referring to the open-heart surgery that he had performed on him.

“So we play them nine months later in the cup final, a two-legged cup final – we won the first game by the score of 1-0 in our stadium, but we lost the second game by the score of 1-0 after 90 minutes of play.” Extra time is going to be played, and Dean Saunders, who is a really talented player and a tremendous striker of the ball, makes me jump out of my chair even before he makes touch with the ball because I just know he’s going to score.

“After we won the game and were presented with the trophy, all of our players raced down to the end of the field where our fans were cheering them on and handed over that enormous banner.

It was everyone’s turn to wave it, and when it was mine, I gave it a couple waves and then handed it to someone else. “All of the participants took turns waving it.
