Carragher has backed “brilliant buy" Shaqiri to shine for the Reds ahead of a bumper run of fixtures for Jurgen Klopp's side.
“I think it's a brilliant buy for Liverpool," Carragher told Sky Sports prior to England's friendly with the Swiss. “He's been around a long time at big clubs and has great experience.
“You look at the price tag, his age as well, he will (make an impact). He made an impact at Leicester when he came on.
“It's one of those buys where even if it doesn't work out, there's no way they're not going to get their money back. So I think it works for everyone really.
“He did make a difference when he came on (against Leicester). He plays more centrally for Switzerland, so maybe that's something going forward for Liverpool also."
