TV entertainer Bob Carolgees has hired former footballer Jamie Carragher as his new assistant.
Carragher impressed Carolgees with his spitting abilities after Liverpool lost 2-1 to Manchester United.
Carolgees told WalesOnCraic:
“Since Spit the Dog was put down last year, I’ve been on the lookout for a replacement. I hadn’t even considered hiring an ex-footballer but I was watching the news tonight and caught Jamie aiming a dockyard oyster at a 14-year-old girl who was passing in her dad’s car. To be honest, I’m not sure what the girl’s dad was doing using his phone to film someone instead of concentrating on the road, but it was Jamie who caught my eye. I have since contacted Sky Sports, his current employer and they said that they’d meet me down the pub tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully, he’ll be on my books within a few days and I can get back to putting on some shows pretty soon.”
A spokesman for Mr Carragher said:
“We do not wish to comment on Jamie’s future right now. All this stuff about working for Bob is just pure fantasy at the moment, although we will look at it seriously. Thanks. Bye.”
