Liverpool legend Phil Thompson has paid a glowing tribute to Jamie Carragher by insisting the centre-back would have fitted into any team in the Reds' history.
Carragher today announced he will retire at the end of the season and bring to a close a glittering 16-year Anfield career.
Thompson was quick to highlight the selfless nature with which Carragher has dedicated himself to the Liverpool cause since making his debut in January 1997.
"He's pushed his body to the limits over the years, all for the great honour of playing for Liverpool," Thompson told Sky Sports.
"We have to give him credit for what he has achieved for the football club.
"Everything that Jamie has done throughout his career has been for Liverpool.
"People questioned his intentions when he retired from international football but Jamie thought it was right, not only for himself, but for his football club. Because his club is all-important to him.
"He has done football, in general, a massive credit in this country.
"The biggest compliment that I can pay to Carra is that, the way he plays the game, he could have fitted into any generation of Liverpool team."
