    Former Liverpool defender Carragher apologises for spitting incident

    Jamie Carragher has apologised after a video showed him spitting towards a girl in a car from his own vehicle.

    The former Liverpool defender, now a television pundit for Sky Sports, had been covering his former side's 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

    The video, obtained by the Mirror, shows Carragher react by spitting at a car after being "goaded".



    A Danish television channel has now pulled Carragher from its coverage of Manchester United v Sevilla on Tuesday.

    Carragher said he was "totally out of order" and has apologised to the family.

    A Sky Sports spokesperson said: "It's unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie."

    In the video, Carragher exchanges waves with the girl's dad. Carragher winds down his window while the girl's dad winds down his passenger side window. The dad can then be heard shouting: "Unlucky Jamie lad. Two, one."

    Carragher reacts by leaning out of his window and spitting towards the car, hitting the girl, who is sitting in the front passenger seat.

    On Sunday night he apologised on Twitter and said that while he was "goaded three/four times while being filmed", there was "no excuse".

    Jamie Carragher suspended by Sky

    However, Sky Sports have taken swift action to remove the pundit from their broadcasting roster as the investigation continues.

    A spokesperson for the channel said: “Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie’s actions, we have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties. It falls well below the standards we expect of our people.”

    Carragher, who retired from football in 2013, was due to go in front of the cameras for Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football coverage of Stoke v Manchester City this evening.

    He is thought to be earning an annual salary in excess of 1million for his punditry role.
