Simpson produces perfect response to Carragher mocking his Man Utd days

The former Liverpool centre-back’s joke backfired.

 Danny Simpson has been rubbing his title win in Jamie Carragher's face.
Danny Simpson has been rubbing his title win in Jamie Carragher's face.

DANNY SIMPSON PRODUCED an outstanding comeback after his spell with Manchester United was mocked by Jamie Carragher.

The Leicester City full-back spent some seven years at Old Trafford after emerging through the club’s academy although made just three Premier League appearances.

Simpson subsequently left to join Newcastle United after an initial loan spell back in 2010, before making the move to Leicester in 2014 after a season at QPR.

The 30-year-old would go on to lift the Premier League title with the Foxes, playing a key role in their remarkable 2015-16 campaign that saw them defy all the odds to become champions.

And Simpson was quick to make that point to Carragher who, after an initial back-and-forth between the pair on Twitter, made a joke about the full-back receiving a winners’ medal despite hardly playing for United.
