Earlier this season, both Henry and Neville questioned why Liverpool had paid £30m to sign Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal after a mixed spell at the Emirates Stadium.

However, after a slow start to his time at Anfield, the England international has been used 33 times by Jurgen Klopp, with four goals and six assists coming in all competitions.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has previously worked alongside both Henry and Neville, and the versatile midfielder has described comments made by the pair as “stupid”.

The 24-year-old is quoted by The Mirror as saying: “I was very aware of those comments, yes. It’s not nice to hear from people you’ve worked with.

“I’ve worked with them both in different ­capacities. They can have their opinions. It can’t shake me. Fair enough if that’s what they think. Those comments are probably a bit stupid.

“Saying, ‘You don’t know what I do’ when you have worked with me, I think it is a bit stupid. When you have watched someone long enough you know what they can do.”
