Jamie Carragher screamed Peter Schmeichel’s name while celebrating PSG winner

Jamie Carragher was caught wildly celebrating PSG 's late winner over Atalanta on Wednesday, as he clashed with former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel.

The Liverpool hero heaped praise on Neymar during last night's clash, despite him missing two first-half chances for the French side.

At the time, PSG were 1-0 down to their Serie A opponents.

But Carragher had been impressed with what he had seen from the Brazilian, saying: "There's no doubt he's looked [like] the sharpest player on the pitch. Look at the three centre backs from Atalanta that play that man-marking system. I felt there would be huge chances.

"He has absolutely killed them outside the box…massively lacking inside the box. I think he's been fantastic to watch. He's certainly got to deliver one or two goals."

Schmeichel, however, wasn't in agreement and said Atalanta 'created all his chances'.

Carragher and the former United shot-stopper continued their verbal disagreement.

“Please don’t cry,” Schmeichel then said at the end of their exchange.

But Carragher clearly got the last laugh, as he wildly celebrated PSG's late winner, with Neymar playing a role in both of his side's late goals.

"What's Neymar done now Schmeichel?!" the Liverpool legend shouted as he was caught on camera.

"He's only set the two of them up! Stick to goalkeeping!"

Reacting to Carragher’s celebration, Schmeichel remained frosty with his former Premier League rival.

He said: "You know a little bit about football. I have to say I’m trying to compare him to players of the likes of [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi, [Diego] Maradona, [Robert] Lewandowski and actually Mbappe – I think he changed the game.

"I don’t think Neymar was brilliant. But I’m so happy for you that you are happy that I was wrong."

PSG left it late to secure the win, scoring two goals in the final seven minutes of action to earn their spot in the semi-final.
