Jamie Carragher will make his 737th appearance for Liverpool on Sunday

The 35-year-old will bring the curtain down on his playing career on Sunday against QPR before becoming a pundit with Sky Sports.

However, he accepts nothing will ever replace the buzz of the dressing room and the only job which will come close to that would be as a coach.

"I am sure I will (miss it). I love the dressing room and getting yourself up for big games," he said.

"There is nothing better than being successful and achieving things with your mates - they were great times for us.

"It is very difficult to replace that whatever job you go into.

"The closest is probably coaching and managing so I suppose if I do miss it so much I will look to get back in at some stage."

Chairman Tom Werner has already said the door is always open for the Bootle-born defender to return in some capacity and manager Brendan Rodgers echoed that.

"Over the course of the next two to three years he will look to decide what he wants to do," the Reds boss said.

"There is no doubt if you are a footballer with the passion he has you are going to miss it.

"You are never going to take the football out of him.

"He has never ruled that (coaching) out but it is not at the forefront of his mind at the moment.

"I hope one day in the future we can look at that side."

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
