Jamie Carragher aims dig at Gary Neville while accepting award for Monday Night Football

Jamie Carragher aims dig at Gary Neville while accepting award for Monday Night Football

Monday Night Football won the Television Show of the Year award.

Jamie Carragher aimed a light dig at Gary Neville as he went on stage to accept an award for Monday Night Football.

MNF won the Television Show of the Year prize at the Sports Journalists' Association Awards, with The Overlap's 'Stick to Football' receiving the silver award and Channel 4's Formula 1 highlights getting bronze.

Sky Sports, meanwhile, won the Sports Content Organisation award, while Neville was also recognised for his widely-acclaimed and emotional interview with Everton's Dele Alli in July, winning the bronze award in the Scoop category.

But Neville did miss out on winning the Pundit of the Year award, as he wasn't included on the list of nominees.

The award was won by Arsenal legend Ian Wright, while former Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha was in silver. Ally McCoist picked up bronze.

And when accepting the award for Monday Night Football, Carragher - who fronts the show alongside presenter David Jones and a weekly guest - couldn't help but aim a dig at the Manchester United legend.

He said: "The one thing I love about this show is it gives me that buzz and that excitement before the show even starts, and the fact that we can get into that real detail.

"One of the reasons I think we've got this award, is people talk about the guests that we have. We're really determined to keep pushing the show on and get the best possible people we can.

"A lot of work goes into it - these people [on stage] are just a small number of the people involved. A lot of work goes into it - we're really proud of the show.

"Obviously there's a few people not here tonight. Dave Jones had another appointment.

"But Gary Neville decided not to come because he wasn't on the shortlist for pundit of the year! This is for him as well, and all the people back there [on stage]. Thank you very much."

Monday Night Football is back on April 8 when Tottenham host Nottingham Forest at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
