Manchester United are out of the Champions League and Jamie Carragher appeared to enjoy their demise from Europe's elite competition.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were threatening to come back from 3-0 down to collect the draw they needed against RB Leipzig to move into the knock-out stages of the competition, with late goals from Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba putting them on the brink of a great escape.

Carragher was watching on from the CBS Sport studio in his role as an analyst for the American TV network and this clip of his excitement as United so nearly snatched a late leveller has gone viral on social media channels.

He followed that up with a tweet reveling in United's demise directed at his Sky Sports colleague Gary Neville.

It's fair to say Carragher and Neville will have a few scores to settle when they are back on duty with Sky this weekend.
