Jamie Carragher: Ramiro Funes Mori let himself down with red card gestures
Last Updated: 21/04/16 1:53pm
Jamie Carragher described Ramiro Funes Mori as "embarrassing" after he patted the Everton badge following his red card in the Merseyside derby.
Everton were 2-0 down when the central defender was shown a straight red on 50 minutes for a challenge on Divock Origi, forcing the Liverpool striker to be taken off the field on a stretcher.
Funes Mori gestured to the Everton fans as he left the field, but the supporters were ultimately made to suffer as their rivals ran out 4-0 winners on the night.
Roberto Martinez has a selection dilemma on his hands for Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United with Phil Jagielka and John Stones injured and Funes Mori now suspended.
And former Liverpool defender Carragher described his actions as "nonsense" as he reviewed them in the Sky Sports studio.
"He has let himself down with the challenge," he said.
"It happens in football. I've made bad challenges and other players have made bad challenges, but going off the pitch he was kissing his badge to the Everton fans.
"I was made up he went off in some ways because it helped Liverpool get more goals, but why was he kissing the badge?
"Number one, he has only been here for two minutes and number two, why is he playing to the crowd because he has injured a Liverpool player? Are they going to be happy with that?
"They were getting battered in the game and he's now going to miss the biggest game of the season when they've got Jagielka out.
"It's embarrassing. What is he doing? Everton fans won't fall for that nonsense.
"It was the only challenge anyone put in by the way, but it was a bad one."
