Putting Diego Costa’s little sherbet dib-dabs to shame, here’s Rangers enforcer Graeme Souness connecting with a proper stamp on Steaua Bucharest’s Iosif Rotariu in the 1988 European Cup – a tackle Rotariu’s teammate Gheorghe Popescu later deemed “the worst tackle he’d ever seen”.
Calling it a tackle is a bit of a stretch…
Love how A) Souey has the gall to complain that some chump has got blood all over his nice clean socks, and that, B) that kind of thing passed as a “definite yellow” in 1988.
My my, how times change!
Just for the record, Souness went completely unpunished.
