Jamie Carragher has hit out at some of his fellow pundits in the aftermath of protests from Manchester United fans on Sunday that resulted in their game with Liverpool being called off.

The demonstrations on Sunday were the latest acts from United supporters in voicing their anger and discontent at the Glazer family, who own the club.

"Souness said:"I think it's born out of United not being top dogs as much as what happened last week.

The next day Carragher was part of Sky's Monday Night Football coverage, and appeared to take a dig at his colleague, explaining how United supporters' anger at the Glazers has been present for the past decade, Carragher said that it was "Lazy punditry" to suggest that fans were only angry because they weren't having on-field success.

"Carragher continued:"This talk of Manchester United fans only doing this because they are not challenging for the top honours... Supporters formed another club - FC United.

"This is nothing to do with where Manchester United are in the league. Yes, there's been a decline, obviously, but this campaign has been going on for a long, long time, from when Manchester United were very, very successful."

"So let's not accuse Manchester United fans of just throwing the toys out the pram because they're not competing with [Manchester] City or in the Champions League, whatever it may be. That is absolute nonsense."
