LIVERPOOL, England -- Liverpool says long-serving defender Jamie Carragher will retire at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old Carragher has been at Liverpool since the age of 9.

Carragher says Thursday, "it has been a privilege and an honor to represent this great club for as long as I have."

Only Ian Callaghan has made more appearances for Liverpool than the 700-plus by Carragher.
