Carragher: Don't blame me for Liverpool signing Lovren!

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has denied claims he encouraged the club to sign Dejan Lovren from Southampton.

Lovren had a day to forget on Sunday when Tottenham battered the Merseyside club 4-1 at Wembley Stadium.

Following the match Carragher was asked - and not for the first time - whether he was the man who recommended the signing when Brendan Rodgers was boss.

He took to Twitter to dispel the rumour, writing: "Where has this come from?

"I get tweeted this all the time! I did a piece on him on MNF when he was outstanding at Old Trafford for Soton!"
