Jamie Carragher takes aim at Steven Gerrard in playful Instagram post

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has run the risk of alienating former teammate Steven Gerrard with this latest Instagram post.

Gerrard recently released his second autobiography entitled 'My Story', serialised in the Daily Mail, which details the former Liverpool skipper's final season with the Reds, and the untimely slip that cost Brendan Rodgers' side the game against Chelsea that shattered their chances of a first league title in 24 years in May 2014.


James has been struggling to sleep of late.....only one thing to cure that!

The current LA Galaxy midfielder makes a number of revelations in the book, including his take on Mario Balotelli and El-Hadji Diouf as well as his personal thoughts on Rafa Benitez,the manager who guided Liverpool to the 2005 Champions League.

Despite the reveal-all details on everything connected with Anfield, Carragher, who released his own book in 2008, took to Instagram to claim that he was less than impressed with Gerrard's autobiography.

Playfully taking aim at his long-time friend and ex-teammate, Carragher posted that his son James was struggling to sleep on Tuesday night - but had the cure for the lack of fatigue in the form of Gerrard's book.

"James has been struggling to sleep of late...only one thing to cure that!" posted Carragher, who is no stranger to getting involved in the banter on social media.

Carragher's self-deprecating sense of humour has regularly seen him involved in keyboard jousting with ex-Manchester United defender Gary Neville.

Speaking earlier this month, Carragher, who represented Liverpool 737 times, admitted that he would one day like to manage United - only to guarantee their relegation from the Premier League!
