Jamie Carragher says that he is content with not being a first-team regular at Anfield.

Jamie Carragher has said that he is content with not being a first-team regular at Anfield.

The defender has been left on the bench for recent Liverpool games, with Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel ahead of the 33-year-old in the pecking order.

"It's not really difficult to adjust to being a sub," Carragher said. "The lads are playing well. Of course you want to play, and the manager wouldn't expect anything else.

"When I have been playing over the years and doing well, someone else has had to sit on the bench for me. The roles have reversed now and you have to show respect to the manager, the club and the players playing in my position. I appreciate that.

"The club have done a lot for me over the years and I'm not going to say anything or cause any trouble just because I'm not playing."

Carragher made his first league start since October when Liverpool drew 0-0 with Stoke on Saturday.
