Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher spits at girl, apologises

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has been filmed spitting at a teenage schoolgirl

Suspended Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher winced and issued a grovelling apology as he was forced to watch vile footage of him spitting at a 14-year-old girl.

"Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions", Sky Sports said in a statement.

And, speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Murphy said:"I felt a genuine remorse from him this morning".

Carragher was due to be working for Danish channel TV3 Sport to cover the match between Manchester United and Sevilla.

At that point Carragher, who has wound down his window, spits towards the vehicle. Carragher then winds down his window while the girl's dad winds down his passenger-side window.

Ignoring his daughter's pleas, the fan then shouts out the 2-1 scoreline, which prompts Carragher to wind down the window of his auto before expectorating.

In retaliation, Carragher leans out of his window and spits towards the vehicle, spraying the 14-year-old girl.

"He has spoken to the family and he has apologised personally, and when you make a mistake in life, and I've made worse ones than that, you have to own them". When I was brought up as a kid, spitting was that and I'll never do it again. I've done that with the family, hopefully they accept that. "Looking at her, you know she is a child", she said.

However, unofficial Sky News insider Lee Satchell has revealed that there was another former footballer who rang in two give his two cents on the matter. The young girl was sat back and reclined in the chair and she was in the line of fire. I lost my head.

The former Liverpool defender-turned sportscaster has already apologized to the teenage girl, while it remains to be seen how his current employer, Sky Sports, will handle the incident.

Sky realise he's good box office, he's great business, and I'd be very surprised [if he was dimissed]. "That devastates me more than anything". "What I would say is there's no doubt what I have done on Saturday after the game is disgusting, I apologise for it".

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

"That family won't be used to the media storm and being dragged into it".

Will he stay as a Sky pundit?

Carragher has become a staple of Sky's coverage of the Premier League since his retirement in 2013.
