Gary Neville’s MNF ‘no show’ explained after Jamie Carragher mocks pal

The reason for Gary Neville's Monday Night Football (MNF) no show has been revealed after Jamie Carragher claimed his colleague was too upset to take part in the show.

Carragher has been mercilessly mocking Neville in the wake of Liverpool's 7-0 thrashing of Manchester United on Sunday, a game both of them (deliciously) were on commentary for, and accused the Red Devils icon of ducking out of MNF duty on Twitter.

Neville hit back though and accused his pal of dirty tricks, insisting he was never scheduled to be on the show.

"Behave yourself! Never meant to be on as you well know you [clown emoji]," Neville wrote. "I will be relaxing looking forward to watching you eulogise over a team you’ve killed for 2 months."

Earlier in the day, Carragher had tweeted: "Gary Neville has cried off from MNF," followed by three laughing emojis, and when asked if his Sky Sports team-mate had "bottled" his appearance, Carragher replied with the 100 [per cent] emoji.

It's just as well Neville missed the show, as Carragher gleefully spent a big chunk of the first hour analysing all the action at Anfield.

Who is the better pundit, Neville or Carra? Let us know in the comments section below.

Carragher also posted a hilarious clip of the duo reacting to all seven of the goals in the gantry, showing Neville with a face like a slapped arse throughout most of it, and some in-the-moment animosity between the pair briefly spilled out into their commentary.

Speaking about United's second half capitulation, Neville said: "You might lose 2-0, you might lose 2-1, you might lose 3-0, but you do not lose 7-0 here. You just don't."

Carragher cheekily replied: "You do today," to which Neville responded: "Do one."
