Stalwart Carragher next for ambassador role at Liverpool

Carragher to follow team-mate Gerrard as the next ambassador for Liverpool

Kenny Dalglish will seek talks with
Jamie Carragher to see if he wants to follow Steven Gerrard's lead and
be come a Liverpool ambassador when his career finishes.

The Anfield manager is adamant
Carragher still has a crucial role to play in his squad but would
welcome the 33-year-old defender one day becoming a figurehead.

Looking to the future: Carragher will remain part of Anfield set-up

'We will have the same conversation that we had with Steven with Carra, to see what his plans and ambitions are,' Dalglish said.

'It is hugely important for the football club to keep great servants in some way, shape or form. He and Steven are fantastic assets for us, on and off the field.'

Liverpool handed their inspirational captain Gerrard a job for life on Thursday when he signed a new contract that has a guaranteed ambassadorial role once he stops playing.

Carragher, 34 in a fortnight, has 18 months left on his current deal and has found himself in a bit-part role this season because of the form of Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger in central defence.
