And he celebrated by taking the camera off club photographer Stuart MacFarlane to snap a shot of his own.

Liverpool legend Carragher reacted by using an iconic Neil Warnock dressing room quote.

He posted on X, formerly Twitter: “By all means enjoy it, but enjoy it by being disciplined!”

Fjortoft, formerly of Middlesbrough and Sheffield United, responded: “Come on @Carra23 Let Martin show his passion!

“Also on the pitch. Let him have this moment with his mates at @Arsenal like @Stuart_PhotoAFC.

“Nothing to do with being disciplined or not. Football could do with more people express their love for the game

“I know you deep inside agree with me, mate.”

Carragher hit back: “Jan it’s a joke about a Neil Warnock quote, FFS!

“I like the way you’ve tagged them all in including the camera man so you get the retweets & likes you want.

“I thought the camera stuff was a bit OTT, a bit like your claim that Mo Salah would leave Liverpool!”

Fjortoft then responded: “Yes, Jamie! I tagged in the Arsenal- photographer Stuart MacFarlane, cause he has been at Arsenal since 1991.

“And he deserves all the praise – I guess that’s the same Arsenal- captain Martin Ø thought after their win.

“In terms of your last line… only a thief sees who is stealing.”

Warnock infamously hit his Sheffield United players with the disciplined team talk before an FA Cup clash against Arsenal.

And he also joined in the banter with Carragher, telling him: “Love listening to your opinions Carra, but get your own catchphrase!”
