As forfeits go, this is a pretty good one.

Graeme Souness is known for being a proud Scotsman, with the teak tough midfielder winning 54 caps and scoring four goals for his country between 1974 and 1986.

No doubt the sight of an England jersey usually makes the combative Souness fill up with patriotic rage but after losing a golf bet, the football pundit had to do the unthinkable.

Souness appeared on Bein Sports today to talk about Euro 2016 decked out in a new England jersey, to the delight of people online.

Bein Sports contributor Mayur Bhanji took to Twitter to explain that Souness' attire was the forfeit for losing a wager on the golf course.

Whoever picked the punishment is an evil genus.
