Jamie Carragher delighted with his efforts

Liverpool defender Jamie CarragherLiverpool‘s Jamie Carragher is delighted to be back in the side on a regular basis and hopes to continue until the end of the season.

The 35-year-old had started eight matches on the bounce, prior to the defeat at Southampton, and he is delighted to be playing a part in Brendan Rodgers’s team, even if it is a limited one.

Carragher has announced he will retire at the end of the season, and possibly move into coaching at the club, but for now is glad he is in the side.

“It was really good to be back,” Carragher told liverpoolfc.com.

“I’ve missed it over the past 12 months, so to have a run of games makes you really feel part of it.

“When you come in for the odd game now and then it’s great, but you know that you have to come out (of the team) and you don’t really feel as much a part of things.

“At the start of the season I was aware that some people were saying I wouldn’t suit Rodgers’ style of football.

“But I think I have put that to bed in the last few games I have played.

“I think I’ve played well this season, without blowing my own trumpet. Even earlier in the season when I was playing in Europe and in the Carling Cup, I was quite pleased with how I performed.

“Hopefully I can carry that through to the end of the season.”
