Graeme Souness gets into road rage spat after ‘forgetting blood pressure pills’

Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness has revealed he was involved in an angry road rage bust-up that could have been avoided if he had taken his blood pressure tablets.

Souness recalled the tale that had occurred on his way into work at talkSPORT. He told the radio station, on his regular show with Simon Jordan and Jim White: "I find London very difficult with the traffic when I drive here.

"I am in the car park and a minute and a half later I've got someone calling me an idiot. I was doing nothing wrong this time.

"He was in the wrong, going the wrong way in a car park so there was a confrontation early in the morning. I need to take more of my pills to keep the blood pressure down. I normally take one of my blood pressure tablets before coming on air."

The former Scotland captain had a triple heart bypass when he was diagnosed with coronary heart disease aged 38.

Souness then had a stent fitted ten years later – after another artery became blocked. In 2015, Souness suffered a heart attack at his home.

Speaking last year, Souness said: "At the time I was training like the professional football players and was only 38-years-old. I kept thinking ‘how can this happen to me?’.

"I looked after myself in terms what I ate and drank and had trained from the age of 15 – I trained as vigorously as a professional athlete. I didn’t carry any weight, I never had done. How had this happened to me?

“I didn’t have the obvious symptoms that there was something badly wrong with my heart so I’m so glad I got checked when I did. It’s because of this that I’m here 30 years later."
