'More Things To Life Than Football'

'More Things To Life Than Football'

Souness: 'I'm a football person, I understand last Wednesday at Wigan, we didn't perform in any shape or form, and I can understand the feelings of our supporters.

'I was angry and disappointed, but today, I'm far happier because the team had a real go. If you are a paying supporter, surely you realise you cannot win every game you are involved in, but the least you can hope for from your team is to give you 100%, and we got that today.

'The last week has not enjoyable, but it's not tough. None of you know me, only people close to me know me, and it's not been tough. There are far bigger things I worry about in life than football. Several times a week, people come to our training ground who are far less fortunate than ourselves - that's the reality of our situation.

'I know if we had won today and won the next four games and then lost two, you would be writing the same things about me then. That's the price on the ticket here at Newcastle.'
