Jamie Carragher has taken to social media to reveal his delight at seeing Liverpool’s owners scrap their plans to introduce a £77 ticket.

Thousands of supporters left 77 minutes into Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Anfield in protest at the planned top-price ticket in the new main stand.

Now, the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group said in a statement published on the Liverpool website: “Message received.”

Liverpool’s most expensive match ticket will now stay at £59 and the highest season-ticket price is also frozen.

Carragher recently voiced his support for the protest about the proposed ticket price hikes at Anfield.

And the former Liverpool defender was clearly thrilled to see the club’s owners backtrack on Wednesday night.

In response to the news, Carragher tweeted:
