Jamie Carragher has ended his Twitter feud with Leicester defender Danny Simpson, with the duo offering apologies to each other and ending their wonderfully entertaining social media spat.

Sky Sports pundit Carragher was outspoken in his criticism of Leicester’s players as they struggled to find their form prior to the sacking of manager Claudio Ranieri in February, with the 2015-16 Premier League champions sparking into form once Craig Shakespaear stepped in as caretaker manager.

Carragher’s comments inspired Simpson to goad the former Liverpool defender who failed to win a Premier League title during his successful career at Anfield, with the duo exchanging unpleasantries on Twitter as their spat became very public.

A cheeky Carragher then reopened the war of words as he posted a photo of himself with a snake and suggested he had ‘finally got his hands on Danny Simpson’.

Inevitably, that inspired a response from Simpson, who posted a photo sitting on his sofa wearing his Premier League title winners’ medal, with Carragher biting back in predictably feisty fashion.

Yet after the pair followed each other on Twitter - and presumably exchanged some private messages to clear the air - they issued joint public apologies to end a row that was entertaining for the rest of us looking on.

In many ways, it is a shame that a peace treaty appears to have been thrashed out in this classic Twitter war...we were all enjoying this!
