Liverpool veteran Carragher happy to see action again for Stoke draw

Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher was delighted to see action against Stoke City.

Carragher admits he enjoyed seeing action for the stalemate.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "I enjoyed it. I am no different to anyone else. I have been out the side for a while and understandably so.

"The lads in my position and the whole team have been doing great. It was just nice to put the red shirt on and play at Anfield again. It is something that I have wanted to do since I was 18 and nothing has changed now I'm nearly 34. But the lads have been doing great and I understand the situation.

"Of course you want to play and the manager wouldn't expect anything else. When I have been playing over the years and doing well, someone else has had to sit on the bench for me. The roles have reversed now and you have to show respect to the manager, the club and the players playing in my position. I appreciate that. The club have done a lot for me over the years.

"You have got to be professional and wait for your chance. When it comes, you have got to do as well as you can."
