Jamie Carragher couldn’t resist poking fun at his Sky Sports colleague Gary Neville after Liverpool FC reached the Champions League final on Tuesday night.

The Manchester United legend was clearly delighted with FC Barcelona’s 3-0 victory over Liverpool FC at Camp Nou last week after Neville sent this cheeky tweet to Carragher.

Liverpool FC made a brisk start to the second leg when Belgian striker Divock Origi broke the deadlock in the seventh minute with a close-range finish at Anfield.

FC Barcelona managed to regroup to keep Liverpool FC at bay until half-time before the Reds lost Andy Robertson to injury following a first-half clash with Luis Suarez.

His replacement Georginio Wijnaldum scored a quick-fire double in the 54th and 56th minutes to restore parity in the tie.

Origi completed an incredible comeback when the former Lille striker netted a 79th minute winner after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cute corner picked out the Belgian star.

Liverpool FC will be hoping to win the Champions League title this season after the Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Kiev showpiece last term.

Sky Sports pundit Carragher wasted no time poking fun at his colleague Neville after Liverpool FC’s sensational win.

Carragher wrote on Twitter: “Been waiting all night for @GNev2 to wake up & realise it wasn’t all a dream!!!”

Liverpool FC are looking to win the competition for the sixth time in their history.
