Jamie Carragher forced to defend punditry after being accused of Liverpool bias

Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher has hit back at a fan on social media who labelled him “the most biased pundit on TV”.

Carragher, who made 737 appearances for the Reds in his legendary 17-year stint at Anfield, has become a regular fixture on Sky Sports since hanging up his boots in 2013.

Alongside long-time Manchester United adversary Gary Neville, the former England centre-back runs the rule over Premier League football on a weekly basis to much acclaim.

Nevertheless, it’s fair to say his punditry isn’t admired by every football fan in the country…

One supporter took to Twitter on Sunday night to accuse Carragher of bias towards Liverpool, which he clearly took offence to.

The fan wrote: “Carra you will never go against liverpool. Your [sic] the most biased pundit on tv. At least neville and keane slate utd.

“Your [sic] so far up liverpools a*** you shouldnt be a pundit”.

Carragher couldn’t help but respond to the dig, joking that colleagues Neville and Roy Keane only criticise United “because they’re crap”.

The 42-year-old replied: “Except over the furlough scheme, Project big picture, Euro super league, Pickford/VVD…….

“Keane & Neville slate Man Utd because they’re crap [but] Liverpool aren’t at the moment Matt.”

Carragher has not only been defending himself on social media, however.

The ex-England international also came out in support of Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler, who was branded “the worst” for bias towards United by a Liverpool fan on Twitter.

“I see this after every LFC game! It’s absolute nonsense,” Carragher replied.

And when another supporter posted a clip of alleged Tyler bias towards United, he said: “I’m sure after 25 yrs of commentary you can get clips of Martin like that on every team, it was a goal when LFC were losing as well.
