Jamie Carragher: Former Liverpool defender suspended by Sky Sports after spitting incident

Jamie Carragher

The former Liverpool defender earlier apologised after video footage emerged of him spitting at two Manchester United fans following Liverpool's defeat at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Jamie Carragher has apologised after being caught on video spitting towards a teenage girl and her family from his auto. A video taken from the adjacent vehicle, released on the website of several British newspapers, clearly shows Carragher spitting at the passenger seat after the father of the girl shouted: "Unlucky Jamie lad".

Carragher, who won two FA Cups and the 2005 Champions League with Liverpool, was stood down from reporting duties on Sky Sports' coverage of Monday evening's game between Stoke and Manchester City as a result of the incident.

Speaking to presenter Alan Brazil on TalkSport, Jones said: 'It is cowardly.

SH: I'm a mum of three and if one of my children, my five-year-old, came home and spat I'd be absolutely horrified and you're a grown man. I've done that with the family, hopefully they accept that.

"That's the only time I've reacted like that, it'll be the only time I ever react like that".

Gaming industry figures trekked to Washington in hopes of persuading lawmakers that virtual violence does not trigger real world outbursts.

"I asked whether this was anything to with the fact that they hate each other's guts but Diouf said it was his moral compass that forced him to ring in". I drove away at first and it just continued.

Carragher stressed that he hoped to apologise to the family again face to face.

At that point Carragher, who wound down his window, spits towards the auto.

"He looked at me and waved, I waved back and then he put his window down", he narrated. "This a bad stain on me, my character, my career". "It's been something we all could have done without but all I can do now is apologise". This won't be nice for them, especially the 14-year-old girl.

Former Manchester City footballer Joey Barton called the act "absolute madness".

Sky's statement did not say how long Carragher's suspension would last.
