Souness warns Liverpool owner Henry there's no way back from Super League debacle and fan relations 'damaged forever'

LIVERPOOL owner John Henry has been warned there's no way back for him by club legend Graeme Souness.

And the former Reds player and manager warned that the relationship between the board and Anfield faithful will be 'damaged forever'.

Liverpool were one of six Premier League clubs that tried to push through a rebel league.

Angry Reds fans hung banners at Anfield and also protested outside Elland Road ahead of Monday's game against Leeds.

But the European Super League fell apart on Tuesday night when Manchester City withdrew.

That set off an domino effect with Chelsea set to follow and Spanish sides Barcelona and Atletico Madrid also on the brink.

The fallout has even seen Manchester United bigwig Ed Woodward quit his role at Old Trafford.

And Souness, who won five league titles and three European Cups at Anfield, thinks it will be hard to ever rebuild relationships with fans.

Henry brought Liverpool in 2010 but was warned that fans would never forget this episode.

Souness said on Sky Sports: "It's been so underhanded, these are relationships that will take some mending.

"The biggest one is not chairman to chairman – it's chairman to supporters.

"I know what Scousers are like. The will not forgive John Henry for this. I can't see how he gets back from this."

Souness added: "I think it's different for Abramovich. I think he and Man City were dragged in.

"I imagine the catalysts for this would've been the Americans at Liverpool and Man Utd.

"How you recover from this I'm not quite sure because the relationship between the supporter and board will be damaged forever."
