Neville tells Carragher he was a terrible player when the ex-Liverpool star blasted him in a hilarious row over Kane
GARY NEVILLE called Jamie Carragher a ‘terrible defender’ as the pair clashed over Harry Kane’s falling out with Abdoulaye Doucoure.
The Everton midfielder was shown a red card in Monday night’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Goodison Park after scratching Kane’s face.
Kane was criticized by many pundits, including Carragher and Piers Morgan, for his theatrical downfall after Doucoure made contact.
And Carragher’s stance sparked an argument at Sky Sport’s studio as fellow player Gary Neville attempted to defend the England captain.
Manchester United legend Neville demonstrated how he saw the flare-up by putting his own hand in his old Liverpool rival’s face – and insisting Kane could have gone to the ground after stinging Doucoure’s fingernails in his eye had felt.
But Carra had none of it, relentlessly is only looked at in slow motion.
A stunned Neville replied, “Oh my god, how can that not be in his eye?
But Carragher added: “Harry Kane shouldn’t go under for this. It can still be a red card for putting your hand in someone’s face, Doucoure is wrong. But as a player I wouldn’t go down there, it’s not nearly enough to put you down.
“What I really dislike is players who try to caution or send off other pros. I have no problem with someone going down, winning a free-kick, bouncing back up and getting back on their feet.”
But Neville refused to let Carragher’s argument lie, responding by referring to his character as a player.

He said: “I feel like you’re rewriting history here. You were a terrible defender who used every single dark art available, you appealed for every decision more than anyone who has ever played, and when your forward has gone down you want him sent away [Doucoure].
“Now you’re talking like an expert in a suit.”
Neville then added: “Seriously, as players, when we go into our dressing room we say ‘Harry, well done’.”
Kane scored a second-half penalty to give Spurs the lead over 10-man Everton.
However, Lucas Moura was then sent off for Tottenham before Michael Keane scored a sensational equalizer in the 90th minute.
And other famous faces crowded into Kane after the game.
Chris Sutton tweeted: “Harry Kane lying like this is embarrassing.”
While Piers Morgan joked: “Thoughts and prayers for Harry Kane tonight – hope this brutal blow doesn’t mean career end.”
