Gary Neville has waded into the Twitter spat between Jamie Carragher and Richarlison.
The Brazilian striker took aim at Carragher on social media just hours after Everton secured their Premier League status. Richarlison played a pivotal role in getting Frank Lampard's men over the line after netting Everton's second goal in their dramatic 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.
Carragher had singled out Richarlison for criticism during the recent Merseyside derby for his on-field dramatics, and the Toffees striker took the opportunity to fire back with a brutal social media post on Thursday night. He tweeted: “Wash your mouth before you talk about me and Everton and I don't respect you,” ending his message with a poo emoji.
The ex-Liverpool stalwart attempted to play down the spat, responding with: "I actually quite like this, if Twitter was about when I was a player I’m sure I would’ve called pundits out quite a lot!!"
But Carragher's Sky Sports colleague Neville also joined in on the online row by cheekily agreeing with Richarlison's blunt take. Quoting the original tweet, the Manchester United icon quipped: "Know how you feel mate".
Richarlison is yet to respond to Carragher's tweet – and it could be a while before he does judging by the Toffees wild post-match celebrations.

Jubilant stars celebrated the huge win with beers and songs in rowdy dressing scenes after the match. Defender Mason Holgate was captured showing off some dance moves while Alex Iwobi and Demerai Gray filmed themselves drinking.
Reacting after the match, Lampard claimed that clinching survival on such a dramatic night ranked as "one of the greatest moments of my footballing life and career".
The Toffees boss – who tasted both domestic and European glory on numerous occasions with Chelsea – said: "I have been very fortunate to have amazing times, especially at Chelsea as a player and a coach. But when you feel the feelings and desperation of what relegation brings to the table, it is different. I thought I might cry [at full-time], I thought I might jump out of my body.
"Nobody can question the celebrations at the end. It is easy to say 'but you haven't won anything'. You know what, come and work at this club for a few months and see the difficulties and what it means to people to stay in this league. It is a special night in Everton's history."
