Jamie Carragher posted a mysterious phone number on WhatsApp on Twitter over the weekend - and the prank has caused a huge headache for one fan in particular.

Carragher bizarrely tweeted the random number on Sunday - and it happened to belong to Scott Forsyth.

The Liverpool legend wanted to see a clip of Gary Neville missing a chance in the legends rematch of Manchester United's 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

He jokingly claimed it was his number but in fact it belonged to Newcastle fan Forsyth, who has been bombarded with over 54,000 messages on WhatsApp.

"At 5.18pm he tweeted it - since 5.19pm my phone hasn't stopped once," he told ChronicleLive .

"I did two interviews with the BBC today about it, and had about 40 calls alone during those.

"My phone battery usually lasts me a day and a half - yesterday, I had to charge it three times.

"My lass says you probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than picking a number at random.”

The football support also revealed he doesn’t rate Carragher as a pundit, and he has gone down further in his estimation.

"I stopped watching Monday Night Football when he became a pundit, as you couldn't understand a word he said," added Scott.

"And he really went down in my estimation after he spat on that child [Carragher was suspended by Sky after footage showed him spitting towards a car as the girl filmed him].”
