Carra: Benitez speculation won't rock Liverpool

Carragher said: "The situation over the manager doesn't affect me, it doesn't affect the other players, we get paid to play football and that is what we have to do.

"Our objective is to improve on the way we have played in the last few weeks, we should not be getting involved in things like that off the field, we have got to look after ourselves.

"We have to stick together. At the moment we are getting a lot of criticism from a lot of people, but we must rally round, get together, and prove a few things out on the pitch.

"The last few weeks have not gone as well as well all would have liked but the main thing is what goes on out on the pitch, not off it.

"We should do what we are paid to do. We should concentrate on that."

Carragher also told Sky Sports: "It's up to the owners what they say about the manager, it is nothing to do with me what goes on between the manager and the owners.

"A few months ago they said everything was fine, I don't think they should be coming out every few minutes answering speculation.

"As for us we are here to play football, that's our job and the rest is nothing to do with us."
