Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes it is ok to scout young players but only if it is done within the rules.

Despite coming through the ranks at Anfield, Carragher says clus should be able to look at the best young talent available but can only sign them if they aren’t doing anything wrong.

"As long as the clubs aren't breaking the rules, there's not a lot that you can say," he told Sky Sports News.

"Those are the rules and if you can get players from abroad very cheap who are very good then you can't say no if you think it's going to improve your first-team in the future.

"But as long as the clubs aren't breaking the rules. I think it's up to Fifa or Uefa if they want to change the rules but as long as the clubs can hold their heads up high and know that they've done nothing wrong then that's the main thing."
