Jamie Carragher and Tony Bellew disgusted as Gary Neville mural unveiled in Liverpool

Gary Neville left Jamie Carragher absolutely fuming as the Manchester United legend unveiled a mural of himself in the Liverpool legend's own town.

Rarely a day of the football season goes by when Neville and Carragher aren't at each other for one opinion or another, or how their teams are performing.

And thanks to their Overlap show the pair can still be taking shots even when the season is on hiatus and they should be taking a mini-retirement.

During their current tour Carragher called his sparring partner a 's**tbag' for not picking his preferred option to complete a takeover at United.

But the Sky Sports pundit certainly got his own back when they visited Liverpool by unveiling a mural of himself in Bootle, which Carragher and former boxer Tony Bellew were not happy with, as you can see in the video below.

"Well people of Bootle. You’ve welcomed me here today like you wouldn’t believe and in honour of my visit look what we have…" Neville opened.

As the van pulled out of the way to unveil the piece of art on the wall, Bellew could be heard asking: "What's going on?"

Adding: "Now we will see something get defaced," as the boxer saw what was on the wall.

"I thought you might want to see some Premier League’s as well," Neville cheekily added.

Carragher was born in the town and he couldn't believe that his frenemy had been honoured there before him, moaning: "I couldn’t believe it, I waited years to get something like that.

"And the work I’ve had to do in this city, and in this community to get something, and he just gets it like that."

Neville replied: "Haunting. Carragher since 1992, p***ing scousers off all my life."

With Bellew against incredulously saying: "“It’s an absolute disgrace that you’ve put a Manc in the middle of Marsh Lane, Bootle," before adding he's going to deface it if someone else doesn't.

It's not the first mural in Liverpool of a footballer to cause some amusement recently, after Roberto Firmino had his face painted on a wall.

Fans soon noticed that the former Reds striker's piece of art was actually done on the side of a house of an Everton fan, which no doubt wouldn't have gone down too well.
