Former Liverpool and Rangers boss Graeme Souness is wanted by Bolton Wanderers.

Former Liverpool and Rangers boss Graeme Souness is wanted by Bolton Wanderers.

The Mirror says Bolton owner Eddie Davies is ready to pick from a managerial short-list of Dougie Freedman, Mick McCarthy and... Souness.

Souness is close friends with Trotters caretaker boss Sammy Lee - his former Liverpool team-mate and assistant.

Former Glasgow Rangers and Southampton manager Souness, who also had a spell in charge at Bolton's rivals Blackburn from 2000-2004, may be brought in on a short-term basis if Davies goes for a promotion-or-bust approach.
