Ian Rush says Graeme Souness would be one of the best managers in world football if he was still coaching today.
Souness managed eight clubs during his managerial career which ended in 2006 after he was sacked by Newcastle United.
The Scot won three titles during his time at Rangers where he enjoyed his most successful time as a manager, while he won an FA Cup at Liverpool, a Turkish Cup with Galatasaray, and a League Cup at Blackburn Rovers.
And Rush, who played with Souness at Liverpool, reckons the three-time European Cup winner as a player would be "up there" with Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, and Jose Mourinho if he had carried on his managerial career.
"He won the league easily at Rangers and came down thinking maybe he can do the same (at Liverpool) but he changed things too quickly, simple as that,” Rush told talkSPORT.
"He lost the young players and the old ones by changing things too quickly – what he did have was the right ideas.
"If Graeme Souness was manager of the team now, he'd be up there with the likes of (Jurgen) Klopp, (Pep) Guardiola and (Jose) Mourinho because I think he knows he'd made mistakes. He'd be an absolutely incredible manager if he was managing now."
