Liverpool beat Chelsea on penalties in Istanbul at the end of a 2-2 draw following extra time.
It moved Liverpool one ahead of Manchester United when it comes to trophies won.
The Super Cup was Liverpool’s 46th trophy, though the list does not include the Community Shield, which many see as a friendly clash.
And Carragher made sure his Sky Sports colleague, and former on-pitch rival, Neville knew all about it.
Carragher tagged Neville in a tweet outlining that Liverpool had gone ahead of United, though the numbers were slightly out.
Liverpool legend Carragher also used the eyes emoji in an attempt to provoke a response from Neville.
Liverpool will get a chance to extend their lead before 2019 is over at the Club World Cup.
And Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was glad to get the first of potentially six trophies this season.
Klopp said: “It’s really important [winning the Super Cup].
“I didn’t know before the game how big it would feel and I know now it’s big.
“It’s nice, really nice, but not about me, I am not just saying that – its about doing it for the people.
“We’ve had four opportunities to do it for them in the last few months and we did two, so that’s good.”
Liverpool now head back to England for their second game in the Premier League.
After beating Norwich on the opening weekend the Reds travel to Southampton on Saturday (3pm).
Klopp added: “We play on Saturday again, we have to find a way to be ready for that game.
“After 90 minutes, I think, when it was close to the final whistle, Frank Lampard asked me: ‘Where do you play and when do you play [at the weekend]?’
“And I said ‘Southampton on Saturday – congratulations!’
“Nobody wanted extra-time tonight, they play Leicester at home on Sunday but they played last Sunday so there was no advantage tonight but for the next game for both it will be pretty tough.”
