Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher is naturally incensed after the Reds had their hopes of reaching the FA Cup final ruined following the loss to Aston Villa in the semi-final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.
The Anfield hero took to Twitter to vent his fury over Liverpool’s lack of ‘big players’, and criticised the wage demands of certain members of the squad – in what was no doubt a subtle dig at contract-rebel Raheem Sterling.

Have a read of his tweet below in which he also slams the Reds’ recruitment policy…
Big games need big players to do big things. Not many of them at Lfc which make wages demands of some ridiculous & the recruitment worse.

Sterling, according to the Telegraph, rejected a new contract worth around £100,000 per-week earlier this year, and the England international is odds on to leave the club in the summer – particularly after describing his flattery at being linked to Arsenal in a BBC Sport interview.
The 2-1 defeat to Tim Sherwood’s side shattered Steven Gerrard’s hopes of leaving his boyhood club in the summer on a fairytale ending – but as Carragher’s tweet highlights – this is the very least of Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers’ worries.
