Liverpool's disappointing season could have hardly finished in worse fashion as they suffered their heaviest league defeat in 52 years, but Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher managed to find one positive.
Captain Steven Gerrard ended his stellar Liverpool career with a 6-1 drubbing at Stoke, though he did get on the score sheet in his final game as a Reds player before his summer move to the LA Galaxy.
Trailing 5-0 at half-time, manager Brendan Rodgers admitted post-match that the pressure has increased with uncertainty surrounding his future as boss.
In what was a dismal day all round for the club, Sky Sports pundit did praise two former Liverpool players for celebrating hitting the back of the net against their former employers, bucking the recent trend.
Embarrassing day for all connected with Lfc 6-1 is not acceptable. Not seen anything but my son left at half time so it must've been bad!!— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) May 24, 2015
Charlie Adam & Peter Crouch celebrated today when scoring against their former club. Well done the two of you!— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) May 24, 2015
Scottish international Charlie Adam spent just one year on Merseyside after a £6.75m move in the summer of 2011 while striker Peter Crouch scored 42 times during his three seasons with the club.
Both of Carragher's former team-mates piled on the misery for Rodgers, but Carragher was pleased to see that the pair went against the new trend of playing down a goal against a former club.
