Liverpool's Carragher has no England regrets
But with McClaren's squad for Friday's friendly with Austria and the Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia on Wednesday having been hit by defensive injuries and suspensions, it was thought Carragher may have had a role to play.
The 29 year old, though, is adamant he has not considered returning to the international fold and is looking forward to Liverpool's next Premier League game away to Newcastle on 24th November.
"No, I've got no regrets," Carragher told Liverpool's official website.
"I'm enjoying it very much. Obviously there's just four or five of us training and that's pretty enjoyable.
"I also get a lot more time at home with the kids, so that's great.
"Hopefully I'll be fresher than most of the lads by the time Newcastle comes around. The whole idea was to help my Liverpool form. Hopefully it's doing that."
