Jamie Carragher has announced he is retiring from football at the end of the current season (via Liverpool Official). A great shame for the club whom he has represented at professional level since 1996, and a great shame for the fans who will miss this highly revered player, who has been crucial to the defensive back line at Anfield for over 16 years.
In those 16 years, Carragher has played 496 League games, 75 Cup matches and made 137 European appearances for Liverpool (via Soccerbase). That is a lot of games, and he is second only to Ian Callaghan for the all-time appearance record for the Reds (via Liverpool Official).
But which of Carragher's games are the most memorable? Here are five that the defender will be most renowned for: the good, the bad and the ugly.
