Published Add your comment

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher will bring the curtain down on his glittering career on Sunday against QPR at Anfield.

He will be playing his 737th final match for the Reds on what promises to be an emotional day for the fans and the club.

He previously stated that he hopes to be remembered as the “decent lad who had a go”.

The match will be marked with a guard of honour and advertising boards around the perimeter of the pitch displaying tributes to the defender.

Carragher has insisted that he is not one to be placed in the limelight and is happy with just appreciation from the fans and the club for his services to the club.

He told LFC TV: "A decent lad who had a go. Everyone has an opinion as to whether you are a good or a bad player - as long as everyone thought I put a shift in, home or away."

He added: "I've not been a flash type of fella. As a player you improve with experience but I've been the same sort of player (throughout his career)."

The changes that he has had to adapt to throughout his career have all come with the way football has changed over the past years. With age, his knowledge in knowing how to play the game and change with the demands of football.

Brendan Rogers has heaped plenty of praise since he brought him back into the side in mid-January to help lead the Reds.

Despite the fact that he is 35-years-old, he has still shown glimpses of his top form, which Carragher puts down to his straightforward attitude.

"My approach is that every game is important," he added on LFC TV. “It doesn't bother me who we play - if I don't play well I get upset with myself after the game.”

His reading of the game over the years has become better and he felt that was the key to being successful in a game.

Carragher has played a pivotal role in Liverpool’s history over the years -and the reception at Anfield will be an emotional one to remember.
