Emotional Carra says goodbye to Anfield

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admitted he had an emotional afternoon after playing his last match for the club at Anfield before retirement.

Last game for the legend

Philippe Coutinho's 23rd-minute goal settled the encounter against relegated QPR but all the attention was on the veteran centre-back on his 737th and final appearance.

He almost capped it with a superb goal - he scored on his full debut in front of the Kop - but his sweetly-struck 25-yard shot cannoned back off the post.

"I'll have to watch it again - I thought it was in," said the 35-year-old.

"I'm not the type to get too emotional but it is emotional. I've got my friends and family in the stands but I just wanted to concentrate on the game.

"We got the win that we wanted and I can go and enjoy myself now."

He added on LFC TV: "It was a special send-off for me and a day I'll never forget.

"I've been playing here a long time and it's sad to think I'll never play at this stadium again in a competitive game.

"But it has to come to an end at some stage and I've got some great memories."
