Watch: Carra & Neville stick the boot in after Southampton’s record defeat


As two former defenders, Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville were less than impressed by Southampton‘s capitulation in their 9-0 defeat to Leicester.

The duo, speaking on Sky Sports, did not hold back in their post-match analysis after ten-man Saints equalled the record for a Premier League defeat.

“You’re thinking ‘what is this backbone in this team?’ Absolutely disgraceful performance,” said Carragher.
