Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has praised his old club's summer market campaign.

Carragher was happy to see them do their business early.

"I think the transfer window was really good for Liverpool," said Carragher. "There was no panic, no stress.

"Sometimes clubs can go right to the end of the window - Everton did this time and it worked out brilliantly for them - but from Liverpool's point of view we had the Shankly do on the Monday night and the manager was there because everything was done.

"That's always a good sign and proved they got all the business done early.

"We even had some new players in the stand for the Manchester United game the day before - so loads of Liverpool players, officials and staff could sit back on Monday night and watch it all unfold with Jim White .... and Sky Sports."
