The finale to the Premier League season was a more explosive affair in the Sky Sports TV booth at Anfield than it was on the pitch.

Sky's senior statesman pundit Graeme Souness walked off the set in a huff at the end of Liverpool's 4-0 win over Brighton in anger at the way the production team had handled his input.

A Sky spokesman said on Monday night: 'Graeme reacted badly to a directive to wrap up his comments before an ad break. But he has been in touch with the production team to apologise.'

Souness, who was unavailable for comment on Monday night, does not suffer fools gladly. He has been a Sky pundit on and off for more than 15 years but contracted for the last decade.

However, some countries, including England, told FIFA they were not in favour when the issue was raised at a coaches workshop at the draw last December. The FA argued that they did not wish to disappoint players twice — first with the 35 picks and then again when Gareth Southgate names his 23 for the World Cup on Wednesday.

Carragher: Suarez spat told me Henderson 'had something' .
Jamie Carragher has revealed the moment he knew Jordan Henderson had the desire to succeed at Liverpool. In an interview with ESPN, the former Liverpool hero recalled an incident between Henderson and star striker Luis Suarez in training: “It took him time to find his feet. He could be a very intense character back then who would get frustrated and emotional at times, but I remember him having a spat with Luis Suarez in training one day and I just thought: ‘Do you know what? He has something.’” “They didn’t come to blows or anything like that, but Jordan and Luis clashed over something and exchanged words, but Jordan stood up to him. That’s not easy as a young player, especially with Luis being one of the older, established pros, but it showed Jordan’s determination, and a lot of us, myself included, wanted him to do well because he was so enthusiastic and clearly hungry to succeed.” Henderson moved to Anfield from boyhood club Sunderland in 2011 in a deal worth £20m and struggled in his first season at the club. He was forced to play on the right of midfield in order to fit into the team, which didn’t suit his game. Since then Henderson has improved drastically and will captain the Reds in Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid. Often underrated by the media and the wider footballing world, Henderson is crucial to the Reds, as he is able to break up play, cover ground quickly and produce cross-field passes to spread the opposition.
