Liverpool defender Carragher proud of derby record

Retiring Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is proud of his derby record.

Sunday's 's derby at Anfield was a ninth draw for the Bootle-born defender, who retires at the end of this campaign.

"There was a lot of talk before the game about the fact that it was my last derby and people were saying 'We want to win for Jamie' and stuff like that," Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.

"But also in the back of my head I knew that Evertonians would have loved to be able to say they beat me in my last derby.

"I wouldn't say I'm pleased with a draw but we've gone another one undefeated. I'm pleased with my record in these games.

"I've always loved playing in derbies. I've always said for me it's the biggest game and I will miss them.

"I will be watching them next season and I will probably be even more nervous. When you play you can do something about it, but watching is very nerve racking."
