Mohamed Salah closes in on Cristiano Ronaldo record as Liverpool seal big Champions League win at Inter Milan, but Jamie Carragher’s highlight of the night was Joel Matip slapping Jordan Henderson

    Despite Liverpool recording an away win in the Champions League at Inter Milan and Mohamed Salah closing in on a Cristiano Ronaldo record, Jamie Carragher’s highlight of the night was something completely different

    The ex-Reds defender tweeted about his former side’s ‘great result’ after the 2-0 victory, but he gave a special mention to a moment that many might not have seen.

    Joel Matip was not in Jordan Henderson‘s good books after Roberto Firmino put his side ahead, due to his strange way of celebrating the strike.

    The Liverpool defender played no part in the Reds’ win at the San Siro but was involved in the celebrations of the first goal.

    The centre-back has played almost every game this season but was rested for the Champions League clash, with Ibrahima Konate partnering Virgil van Dijk in defence.

    But he was keen to get amongst the congratulations when Firmino headed home to put the Premier League outfit 1-0 ahead, as he slapped the heads of the Brazilian, Henderson and Luis Diaz.

    The others didn’t seem fussed, but Reds captain Hendo didn’t seem too impressed by the actions of the 30-year-old – the skipper turning around and giving Matip a frightful glare as he walked back onto the pitch.

    It’s just one of many funny moments involving the defender over his Liverpool career, with a whole Twitter page – ‘No Context Joel Matip’ – dedicated to highlighting his wonderfully strange behaviour.

    And Carragher was one of many that couldn’t help but laugh at the situation.

    Some Liverpool supporters may have Salah’s goal down as their favourite moment of the night, as the Egyptian fired home his side’s second in Italy.

    And the forward broke another club record with that strike, becoming the first player in Liverpool’s history to score in eight consecutive away games in the Champions League.

    But Matip may have taken the attention away from the feat, with his classic comedic tough to proceedings at the San Siro.

    And Salah still has some way to go to reach the all-time Champions League record, which is held by Cristiano Ronaldo who scored in a mighty 12 consecutive European away games for Real Madrid.

    But, as they say, records are there to be broken…
