Liverpool veteran Carragher thanks Man Utd striker Owen for handling jeers

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher was pleased Manchester United striker Michael Owen took part in his testimonial.

The Manchester United man was one of a host of former Liverpool stars who turned up and helped Carragher beat his target of raising £1million for charity.

Carragher told liverpoolfc.tv: "I was delighted Michael Owen got a good reception, as he didn't have to come back. It took a bit of courage and it was nice that there were so many old faces involved.

"Everyone understands the situation with Michael and he realised that he might take a bit of stick. He probably did at the start of the game.

"But, obviously, the aim was to try to raise £1million and it's brilliant we did that.

"It's all going to benefit charities in Liverpool and things could not have worked out better. It wasn't about me."
