Former Liverpool and Rangers manager Graeme Souness has been taken to hospital in Bournemouth.

No details of the 62-year-old's condition have been made available.

Since leaving his last job in football as manager of Newcastle in 2006, Souness has worked in the media, most notably as a pundit for Sky Sports.

His colleague Jeff Stelling opened the station's Soccer Saturday broadcast by saying: "Souey, if you're watching, get well very quickly."

Souness won 54 caps for Scotland during a playing career which also saw him win five league titles and three European Cups for Liverpool and the Coppa Italia with Sampdoria.

As a manager, he led Rangers to three Scottish titles and four League Cups. He won the 1992 FA Cup with Liverpool.

He had a triple heart bypass operation in 1992, when he was 38.
