Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been suspended from his role as a Sky Sports pundit after video footage emerged of him spitting towards a girl in a auto, the television company said on Monday.
The former Liverpool defender was working as a pundit during his former side's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Old Trafford.
Carragher, being goaded by a Man United fan in a vehicle, was filmed opening his window and spitting towards the shocked supporter and his daughter. A male voice can be heard saying "unlucky Jamie lad, 2-1!" before Carragher spits.
In a gruelling live interview which dragged on for 13 minutes, the football pundit repeatedly said he was sorry for what he described as a "moment of madness" - hours after he was suspended by Sky Sports and Danish channel TV3 Sport.
"I didn't to be honest (see the girl), she was leant back". "That devastates me more than anything".
I've let Sky Sports down, my family and the family involved. "I'm sorry. I'll apologise again today (Monday) properly", said Carragher.
Carragher has apologised for the incident, which took place after Liverpool lost 2-1 to Manchester United on Saturday, calling it "a moment of madness". "No matter the circumstances, you can't ever behave like that".
He said his "biggest regret was that a young girl was caught up in the middle of the altercation".
Amid the fallout that ensued after Jamie Carragher's saliva-based indiscretion over the weekend, fellow footballer-turned-media-figure Gary Lineker managed to get himself embroiled in a Twitter spat (pun intended) on Monday. "I've got a daughter of the same age and I can't say how I'd react if someone did that to her".
"Whatever someone's done I hate angry mob bullying", Rachel said last night.
Gary Neville - with whom Carragher has formed a highly-regarded punditry duet - said this was an "isolated incident" and hoped he would be able to continue in his role.
On a serious note, we all make mistakes, @Carra23 made a big one. "He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted".
