Carragher and Shreeves branded ‘Wolverine and his father’ as Tony Bellew teases duo ahead of Liverpool vs Everton

TONY BELLEW had Jamie Carragher in stitches after likening the Liverpool legend and Geoff Shreeves to ‘Wolverine and his dad’.

The pair appeared on Sky Sports News on Saturday to preview the upcoming Merseyside derby.

A wind-swept Shreeves stood next to Carragher on the Anfield pitch, the ex-defender sporting a thick beard.

And retired boxing star Bellew poked fun at their lockdown looks.

The Toffees-mad Liverpudlian, 38, tweeted: “Just seen Wolverine and his father doing the pre-match analysis on SSN! #LockdownHaircutProblems.”

Carragher, 43, responded with laughing emojis, and asked: “Who’s is worse?”

Bellew replied: “Geoff’s wingbacks are quicker than yours mate so I’d have to say Geoff’s!”

Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling also teased the ex-defender and reporter Shreeves as he introduced the pair, remarking that they were proudly complying with the lockdown ban on barber shops opening.

Naturally, attention soon turned back to Bellew’s Everton taking on Carragher’s old club.

The boxer added: “Enough of this now.. Your lot are getting it!!!!!”


Ahead of the Saturday evening kick-off, Carlo Ancelotti’s side sat three points behind Liverpool.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin was fit enough only for the bench having sat out Everton’s defeats to Fulham and Manchester City.

The Reds were also on a sticky run before the derby, losing three league matches on the bounce but securing a 2-0 victory over RB Leipzig in midweek.
