Harry Redknapp: Hails Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher

The Liverpool legend will make his final appearance against Redknapp's men on Sunday, ending a 16-year career.

And Redknapp, who will remain in charge at QPR next season despite the club's relegation to the Championship, has paid tribute to the 35-year-old.

"Jamie Carragher has been one of the great pros. He's a top, top professional and a great guy. He has a great knowledge of the game and is a real leader," he said.

"Everybody would love a Jamie Carragher in their team. If I had him in my team next season we'd get promoted. That's how highly I rate him.

"He's the type of player who will drag the team along for you. There aren't many of them around.

"Liverpool are very lucky to have had him and Steven Gerrard at the club. They've been brilliant.

"Liverpool's his team and I imagine he's never even thought about leaving the club. It will be a full house for him at Anfield.

"He's been massive to Liverpool, one of their most important players. He's up there with all their great players over the years - Tommy Smith, Emlyn Hughes and Phil Thompson."

Redknapp expects to make major changes to his squad this summer, but insists strikers Bobby Zamora and Andrew Johnson will be staying.

"Bobby and Andy have contracts, where are they going to go? I expect them to be here. They're two good players and I'd like to keep them," he added.

"They have contracts so I don't see any reason why they won't be here

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
