GRAEME SOUNESS is likely to retire from Sky punditry duties at the end of the season, according to reports.
The Liverpool and Rangers legend, 69, has made more sporadic appearances than usual on Sky Sports' Premier League coverage this season.
Souness has tended to sign three-year contract extensions since working for Sky.
But according to The Athletic, he was "happy" to only pen a one-year deal at the end of last season.
They add that his latest contract was only for a reduced, set number of appearances.
Souness has been a regular fixture on Sky Sports since joining the broadcaster full-time in 2006.

Joining Sky marked the end of his 20-year managerial career, with his last job at Newcastle United between 2004 and 2006.
Souness will turn 70-years-old before the end of this season and is "set to take a step back".
In addition to Sky, Souness has also done punditry work for Rangers TV and ITV in recent years.
He memorably worked for the latter during England's fiery Euro 2020 clash with Scotland last year.

Souness has also done radio work for talkSPORT this season.
The Scot recently told the broadcaster that Cristiano Ronaldo should have started for Manchester United against City earlier this month.
And earlier this season, while working for the radio station, Souness found himself in a war of words with Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings.
After defending Steven Gerrard's decision to strip Mings of the Villa captaincy in his newspaper column, the England centre-back called the article "weird" and "pointless".
Souness then threw the ball back into Mings' court, inviting him to have it out on air: "Anytime, anytime."
