    The Sky Sports pundit and Liverpool legend refused to dilute his delight as Liverpool ended their long wait for a league title, even though he admitted the absence of fans inside stadiums has taken something away from their moment of glory.

    Speaking to TEAMtalk at a Sky Sports event, the defender who played 737 games for Liverpool during his two decades at Anfield was joyous as he celebrated Klopp’s latest moment of glory.

    “We have all waited so long for this moment and that had added to this moment,” said Carragher. “The fans became desperate to win it, to the point that it became painful at times and that’s why this means so much.

    “All of us who have played for the club over the last 30 years have strived for this moment and it hasn’t happened, but all credit goes to Jurgen Klopp and his players because they have not only won it, they have won it in style.

    “The points they’ve got and winning 25 of their first 27 games to start the season, I don’t think it has ever been done before in any major European league, this is a special team, there is no doubt about that.

    “The only sadness is the fans are not able to celebrate with the players in the stadium because of what has gone on in the last few months. That does take something away from it.

    “In many ways, the big losers are Liverpool supporters and the players missing out on that euphoric moment. The title is coming back to Liverpool and being able to celebrate that, being the team that brought the title back and for them to miss out is sad but totally understandable and acceptable given the situation we are in.


    ‘An era is over three or four years’

    “They are in the situation now where they are just delighted they are going to win the league on the pitch, rather than being given the league.

    “But of course, they are missing out on something that is being really special but they can’t complain about that given the situation the world has been in.”



    Carragher went on to suggest that a team is judged over an extended period of success and he thinks that this Liverpool side has what it takes to win more trophies next season.

    “An era is over three or four years so let’s see where Liverpool are after that,” he continued. “They will probably want another European Cup and another Premier League to be right up there with the best.

    “Over the next couple of years, if they get another league title and maybe another European Cup they would be right in the mix with the best teams, certainly in the Premier League era and maybe even before that.”
