It’s sure to be an emotional occasion at Anfield when Premier League stalwart Jamie Carragher hangs up his exclusively all-black boots following Liverpool’s game with hapless QPR.
The Reds are a microscopic 1/4 to grant him the win he’ll be craving for but, if that sort of value doesn’t whet the appetite, Ladbrokes have released a host of specials to commemorate Carra’s retirement with some massive windfall opportunities.
You can fatten your wallet considerably by predicting what he will do first in the game.
A yellow card is rated the most likely at 5/2, while a Carragher assist weighs in at 5/1. The 35-year-old has contributed one already this term, but this alternative seems a little short to be his first contribution to the game.
However, this offers much better value than the 16/1 that says he’ll score before any of the other options occur. In 507 Liverpool appearances he’s only found the back of the net four times, though there is the possibility that he may assume honorary penalty taker duties so don’t entirely dismiss this.
A price of 33/1 says the first thing he’ll do in the game is score an own goal. He’s put through his own net more times than the opposition’s, though it would surely be too cruel a way to sign off on such a fantastic career.
Those who fancy the centre half won’t commit a single foul throughout the entire game can get paid out at 1/2, while an any time own goal pays out at the same rate as it being the first thing he does in the match.
