Former Liverpool Defender Apologises For Spitting Incident

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

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has apologised after a video emerged showing him spitting out of his vehicle window at a 14-year-old girl and her father.

Pic: Rex Features (Carragher has been a regular TV pundit since his retirement from football in 2013) Jamie Carragher has apologised after a video showed the former England and Liverpool defender spitting towards a girl in a auto from his own vehicle.

Having a "bit of banter" with the footie star, the dad filmed himself taunting Carragher over the Anfield side's 2-1 loss. A male voice can be heard saying "unlucky Jamie lad, 2-1!" before Carragher spits.

The football pundit apologised on Sunday evening for the incident via Twitter but a spokesman for Sky reprimanded the former Liverpool defender, calling his actions "unacceptable".

The 14-year-old daughter of the United supporter was in the passenger seat and claims to have been hit in the face by Carragher's saliva. I was goaded 3/4 times along the motorway while being filmed & lost my rag.

She said: "I have never been spat at by anyone before".

"I lost my head", Carragher told the Mirror. "I thought, 'Why has he done that".

Carragher is still expected to take up his role as pundit on Sky's Monday Night Football show for the Stoke v Manchester City game on Monday.

The girl's mum said she was furious at Carragher, a dad-of-two, for spitting at a child.

"It is unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie", Sky said in a statement.

He said: I was spat at once in my career.
