Souness And Rangers - A Partnership Made In Heaven?

Last updated : 07 December 2005 By Footy Mad - Editor

Souness: "Yes I have fondness for Rangers, but I have no interest in returning to the club. There is absolutely no truth in these reports."

McLeish's future at Rangers remains uncertain despite their 1-1 draw with Inter Milan which secured his side a second-place finish in their Champions League group, but reports north of the border insist the former Lyon coach Paul Le Guen has been lined up to replace him

Souness' denial certainly does not change our opinion that he will join close friend Rangers chairman David Murray at Ibrox at some time.

The Evening Chronicle report: "Souness, 52, who has always said the Newcastle job would be his last in management, is not expected to meet with Shepherd before the arrival of Arsenal at the weekend and, even if United lose that match, Souness would still be expected to be in charge when the Magpies travel to West Ham United on December 17.

"Only if Newcastle slump to another defeat at Upton Park would Shepherd possibly be forced to act."
