Carragher slams Suarez behaviour
Manager Brendan Rodgers is making the player train on his own after the Uruguay international accused him of reneging on a deal he claims was struck last summer which would to allow him to leave should the club not qualify for the Champions League and receive a suitable offer.
The Reds boss has taken the unusual step of taking a hard line with his star player, with the full backing of owner John Henry who has arrived on Merseyside after watching Wednesday's friendly in Norway.
Henry has previously kept his distance to the issue, having been in communication with Rodgers and managing director Ian Ayre from America, but now has the chance to see for himself just how toxic the situation has become.
Carragher believes it is time his former team-mate started to realise how badly his behaviour in angling for a transfer reflects on him and the club.
"Sort yourself. You can't have that and can't accept that," he offered as words of advice to the troublesome South American.
"There's ways and means of going about it. Players get transferred all the time and you can't always have what you want.
"He can't carry on the way he's been carrying on. Brendan Rodgers has come out and said that nobody is bigger than the club and that's exactly right.
"If Suarez is a distraction for everyone then he needs to be taken out of the group.
"There will be agents and probably people at Arsenal talking to him but he's a grown man.
