Liverpool veteran Carragher: Rodgers debut win more important than game No700

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says a winning debut for manager Brendan Rodgers was more important than his 700th game landmark in Belarus.

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says a winning debut for manager Brendan Rodgers was more important than his 700th game landmark in Belarus.

Carra made his 700th appearance for Liverpool in the Europa League win at FC Gomel this week.

"Every game for Liverpool is a massive game - it doesn't matter where it is - and I'm delighted and proud to have played that many games for the club," he told Liverpoolfc.com.

"It was a nice night for me on that score, but it was more important because it was the manager's first game. That's more important than me playing 700 games.

"It's a big thing for a manager in his first game, especially playing in Europe. It's a big thing for Liverpool, great tradition, and it's great we got the victory for the manager more than anything.

"As I said, his first game was more important than my 700."
