The former Liverpool defender was hoping to speak to his ex team-mate ahead of Aston Villa’s game against the Reds.
Jamie Carragher treated his Instagram followers to a tour of Villa Park ahead of Aston Villa vs Liverpool
Carragher got to the tunnel on his quest to find best mate Steven Gerrard
But an Aston Villa employee stopped Carragher in his tracks
She asked to see the pundit’s accreditation before turning him back to pitchside
He took his Instagram followers around the famous old ground and gave them a glimpse of the Villa trophy cabinet – including the European Cup trophy.
The pundit even posed for a selfie with one Villa steward but he was not recognised by everyone inside the ground.
After making his way into the tunnel Carragher began edging his way towards bestie Stevie G, only to be stopped in his tracks.
A member of stadium staff unaware as to who Carragher was asked him to identify himself and show if he had the correct accreditation.
Carragher said he was there to see Gerrard and asked if he could give the Villans boss a ring to verify who he was – but the Villa employee seemed to think he was on wind up.
He could have put up a fight after being denied access but instead Carragher gracefully accepted he was not allowed in and then concluded his tour.
Fans were amused by the tour and at the fact Carragher tried to name drop his mate Gerrard.
One fan commented: “From a steward selfie to a nobody in less than a minute! 😂”
Another added: “Name dropping Stevie to get perks.”
And a third said: “Name dropping Stevie G and the woman not knowing who you are was hilarious.”
