Jamie Carragher spits at 14-year-old fan of Manchester United

Jamie Carragher spits at 14-year-old fan of Manchester United

Sky Sports has suspended soccer commentator Jamie Carragher indefinitely after the Liverpool legend spat out a vehicle window in the direction of a heckler and his 14-year-old daughter.

This comes after Carragher was filmed spitting at a Manchester United fan and his teenage daughter (after being antagonised) following United's win over Liverpool on Saturday.

His 14-year-old daughter said it hit her before pleading with her father to stop filming.

Former England footballer Jamie Carragher will not appear on tonight's Monday Night Football show after being suspended by Sky Sports due to his involvement in a spitting scandal, Sky News has revealed.

The Liverpool legend was being taunted by some Manchester United fans when he "lost his rag" on Saturday.

"It was nearly an out-of-body thing but you can't ever behave like that, it's unacceptable", he told Sky News on Monday.

The former Liverpool defender, and Sky pundit, arrived in London on Monday morning to meet with his bosses after he appeared to spit at a 14-year-old girl over the weekend.

Before the 57-year-old could explain his "joke", Shreeves replied: "Good luck with your halo".

"That devastates me more than anything".

The youngster's 42-year-old dad said: "We don't want him to lose his job".

"It's devastating for the family involved and I'm sorry for my actions", he said in the video below. What I would say is there is no doubt that why I have done is disgusting.

Sky Sports issued a statement about the incident, saying: "It's unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie".

"I've got a daughter the same age.it's hard to find the words for the way I'd react". "No excuses he's made a big mistake", stated Neville in a Twitter message. I wish she wasn't involved.

Carragher was suspended as a Sky Sports pundit after spitting at the girl, the broadcaster announced.

He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted.

"Whether it's about the receptionist or Jamie Carragher, we do not fire people before we've heard them", he added.
