Carragher said: “This will be my last season at Liverpool and my last as a professional footballer. It has been a privilege and an honour to represent this great club for as long as I have and I am immensely proud to have done so and thankful for all the support I have had.”

“I won’t be making any further comment on this decision until the end of the season. All our focus and concentration should be on achieving the best possible finish in the league this season and trying to win the last remaining trophy we are competing in,” - the player added.
