Liverpool defender Carragher clashed with Sky reporter after Cup triumph

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher took aim at Sky reporter Andy Burton after winning the Carling Cup.

The Daily Mail says Carragher, who had been taking pictures as he soaked up the atmosphere, objected to Burton asking him, "Is this the start of a farewell?"

Before walking off, the Liverpool star replied, "I don't think so. Are you the manager? You were lucky to keep your job at Sky, weren't you, after that Wolves stuff."

That was a reference to Burton's part in the chain of events that led to Richard Keys and Andy Gray departing Sky following derogatory comments off-air about referee's assistant Sian Massey.

Carragher, who has appeared on the Keys and Gray radio show on talkSport this season, is known to be supportive of the pair.
