Jamie Carragher and Philippe Coutinho were involved in a hilarious post-match interview following Liverpool's thrashing of Spartak Moscow in the Champions League.

The brilliant Brazilian starred for Jurgen Klopp's side, bagging a superb hat-trick on a night he skippered the Reds.

And after guiding Liverpool to the knock out stages of the Champions League, Coutinho was joined by Carragher as they conducted a interview for Norwegian TV.

But during the interview, Carragher's phone went off which prompted a funny exchange between the former Liverpool defender and reporter about the Coutinho to Barcelona transfer talks.

Carragher responded by insisting he's staying at Anfield despite the rampant rumours linking Coutinho with a move to the Camp Nou.

The Catalans made no secret about their desire to sign the Liverpool star in the summer. Though their advances were swiftly turned down by the Premier League club who rejected a couple of monstrous offers, while hellbent on their stance that he's not for sale.

Coutinho, ultimately, remained at Liverpool and has produced heroics since reintegrating back into the fold. Including his first hat-trick for Liverpool last night on the European stage.

Liverpool topped Group E ahead of Spanish side Sevilla with 12 points to their name.

Liverpool are one of five teams flying the flag for England ahead of Monday's knock out draw. Klopp's charges could face the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus or Real Madrid, among others.

In the meantime, it's only the small matter of the Merseyside derby on Sunday as Liverpool entertain neighbours Everton.
