Newcastle fan Scott Forsyth claims his life has been made a misery after Carragher gave out his mobile number randomly.

He is now angry as he feels the Sky Sports pundit made light of what happened.

Carragher phoned up Scott and offered to buy him a new phone.

Scott, 37, told BBC Newcastle: “He didn’t sound very remorseful.

“It didn’t sound like it was that much of a big deal.”

The former Liverpool defender tweeted a message asking fans to send footage of fellow pundit Gary Neville missing a sitter.

He gave out the random number which turned out to be Scott’s.

Since then the Newcastle man has received 65,000 WhatsApp messages before changing his phone.

Scott continued: “He introduced himself as Mr Carragher. I could tell straight away that it was Jamie Carragher.

“He started off apologising for tweeting my phone number out”

He started off apologising for tweeting my phone number out. He said he was sorry for tweeting the number and had only been made aware of it last night.

“Without using the same words as him he said he was drunk.

“This is backed up by the tweets he posted after posting my number. I don’t think it was malicious, I think it was a tad stupid but I don’t think it was malicious at all.”

Still he feels that Carragher hasn’t taken on board what a headache he has caused him and offering him a new phone didn’t solve it.

Scott said: “I found it a little bit insincere the way he was talking. He didn’t sound very remorseful. It didn’t sound like it was that much of a big deal.

“I have had this number for about 12 years so it isn’t as simple as just changing my number.

“That’s not the issue, if I wanted to change my number I can do that via my service provider and I don’t need a new phone as I have a top of the range phone.

“For me it’s about the inconvenience and about being exposed really.”

A Carragher representative confirmed the former player had made the call as he was sorry for the trouble he had called and offered to by a new phone and number.
