Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher engaged in a bit of an exchange on Twitter this morning, which started out as banter but quickly turned a bit more personal.
The Sky Sports pundits are well known for their friendly rivalry, and can often be seen teasing each other and enjoying a joke at the others’ expense, especially when their old clubs Manchester United and Liverpool are involved.
Things seem to be getting a bit heated now, though, as the pair exchanged some pretty personal insults across social media this morning.
It started with Neville tweeting: “Excelling themselves again @AvantiWestCoast. We haven’t loaded any cutlery packs this morning. Forget assessing Ronaldo on MNF tonight I’m covering this lot. Absolute shambles of a company. Morning everyone…”
The former Man Utd defender clearly wasn’t in the best of moods, and Carragher mockingly posted an image of himself in response, clearly enjoying a far smoother journey.

This clearly irked Neville, who responded: “You lot sold out to beat tiered lockdowns, won all the pilot events post CV and you’re now celebrating a private contract partner of a Tory government.
“You write for the telegraph, drink red wine and stay in a 5 star hotel in Whitehall. Mr James Carragher Ladies and Gentlemen!”
Carragher didn’t hold back with his response as well, saying: “The Roman Abramovich of league 2, who wants an independent regulator to regulate the Glazers but not the class of 92, used his testimonial money to build a hotel for the fans (they still have to pay & Sat was his biggest taking, let’s analyse that bit of Ronaldo on MNF!)”
Things cooled down a bit from that point on, but one has to wonder if these two actually don’t get on as well as it usually seems…
