Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says his respect for Sir Alex Ferguson remains intact, despite the former Manchester United manager's attack on the Reds in his new book.

Carragher wrote in the Daily Mail: "My respect for Ferguson is total. I regard him as the best manager there has been for his achievements at Manchester United and, crucially, what he accomplished with Aberdeen. But he never managed to do what Bob Paisley did with Liverpool, namely achieving total European domination. Paisley remains out on his own with three European Cups and perhaps that’s why Liverpool remain at the forefront of Ferguson’s mind.

"I’ve read the book and it is excellent, as you would expect from its author and subject. Certain criticisms of Liverpool are justified, too, such as the barb about us wearing T-shirts to support Luis Suarez at Wigan and Benitez’s ill-advised ‘facts’ press conference in 2009.

"But there are some of Ferguson’s opinions about Liverpool — my Liverpool — that I simply cannot accept."
