Carragher apologises after spitting at girl

The other driver, who filmed the footage, repeatedly shouted the 2-1 score to Carragher, who is heard to say, "All right", before winding down his window and spitting towards the other auto. It ends with the girl saying to her father that Carragher's spit had hit her in the face.

The former Liverpool defender arrived in London to meet with his bosses at Sky Sports after he appeared to spit at a 14-year-old girl.

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 wish I could go back and change it, obviously that's not the case".

"I'm sure there will be repercussions for him and he'll take them on the chin, but all you can do when you do mess up is hold your hands up and try and deal with it the best you can".

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

"It's devastating for the family involved and I'm sorry for my actions", he said. "I've let my family down but I've let the family in the vehicle opposite me down. I was a role model, people looked to me".

"I think it's disappointing because he's a good pundit but you just can't condone that".

Speaking to Sky News, the ex-Liverpool defender called it "a moment of madness". "Spitting at 14-year-olds through a window?" I mean the fact it is a young girl makes it feel slightly worse for me.

'I was shocked more than angry when he did it because I couldn't believe what had happened'.

Greater Manchester Police said they had not received any complaints regarding the incident.

Danish broadcaster TV3 have also dropped the 40-year-old from their coverage of United's Champions League tie with Sevilla on Tuesday night.

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

As the Sky Sports pundit today met with TV bosses, the web was flooded with a series of amusing pictures and video poking fun at the star. "The mistake I've made today is a huge one". Slamming him for his disgusting actions, English football legend Vinnie Jones ripped Carragher apart and asked him to step down from his job as a TV presenter.
