Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes the club's troubled season could end in the ultimate glory after their progression to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Jurgen Klopp's side have collapsed in alarming fashion in the Primer League in the opening weeks of 2021, but they kept their European campaign on track with a 4-0 aggregate win against RB Leipzig in the round of 16.

Now Carragher is convinced they can go all the way to the final of the competition on May 29th, with the location reviving memories of his finest hour in a Liverpool shirt.

Carragher played a key role in Liverpool's famous 2005 Champions League final win against AC Milan in Istanbul and now he is hoping to see Klopp's side appear in what could be their third final in the competition over the last four years.

"Oh, it’s happening! It’s happening," declared Carragher as he watched Liverpool's win in the CBS Sport studios.

"We’re going to Istanbul, we’re going to Istanbul. He knows, he knows! Istanbul, it’s happening. I can feel it.

"I needed a lift after watching Liverpool these last few weeks and they’ve given me it."

Liverpool will now await their fate in the Champions League draw, as they look to emerge from an injury-hit and traumatic season with the ultimate glory in the final game of the season.

Meanwhile, Carragher has revealed he set up a cheeky petition that he has urged his social media followers to sign up to.

With Liverpool losing six successive games at Anfield amid an alarming slump in home form, they have played some of their best football in the last month in European games played in Budapast's Puskas Arena.

So Carragher hinted he would start a petition calling for all Liverpool home matches to moved to Hungary for the rest of this season.

It is an idea that may gather plenty of support if Liverpool's Anfield slump does not end soon.
