Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a message to Everton defender Morgan Feeney.

The former Liverpool defender was pleased to see Feeney make his first-team debut for Everton in the Europa League game against Atalanta at Goodison Park on Thursday evening.

Feeney is 18 years of age and operates as a defender, and his performance for the Toffees after coming on as a substitute in the 69th minute was encouraging.

The teenager is a graduate of the Everton academy, and Liverpool legend Carragher is pleased to see him make his debut for the first team.
