Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says family all had Everton tattoos "taken off"

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher claimed his family members all had their Everton tattoos "taken off" after being questioned by a fan.

The former centre-back made over 500 appearances for the Reds where he stayed for the entirety of his 17-year career, having come up through the academy.

But with Carragher openly admitting that he was a supporter of bitter cross-city rivals Everton as a youngster, various rumours have emerged over the years of the former England defender having Everton tattoos.

And now the Sky Sports pundit has provided a savage response after being probed over his family’s allegiances on Twitter.

A curious fan took to the social media site to ask the former Liverpool captain whether he and his relatives indeed had a tattoo of the Everton badge on them.

Carragher, a Champions League winner with the Anfield side, responded: “No!! We all got our tattoos taken off!!”

Rumours of Carragher having an Everton tattoo on his arm gathered steam among the Blues faithful due to his commitment to wearing long-sleeved tops as a player.

He previously stated it “wasn’t true” that he had one on his arm, though he never ruled out having one elsewhere on his body.

Carragher had claimed in his 2009 autobiography that he went from being the Toffees’ biggest supporter to wanting to beat them more than any other side.

The central-defender was a through-and-through Kopite by the time he retired in 2013, but admitted the transition took a long time.

He wrote: “At first I still liked Everton and wanted them to be performing well, but increasingly I became less tolerant.

“The transformation from loving them to openly wanting them to lose took years to complete.

“But when I saw some of my best friends suffering as a result of revolting abuse, naturally my love for Everton receded.”
