Ex-Liverpool Star Carragher Spits At Teenage United Fan, Apologises

Jamie Carragher

Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports after a video showed the former England and Liverpool defender spitting towards a girl in a auto from his own vehicle.

In a live interview on Sky News on Monday afternoon, Carragher, who called the family on Sunday, said: "It was a moment of madness that is hard to explain".

A man driving alongside Carragher on the motorway rolled down his window to goad the former Liverpool star about the scoreline and Carragher responded by spitting in his direction. In his defence, Carragher had stated that he was unaware of the fact that the 14-year-old was sitting inside the auto and was on the passenger's seat.

After all this scene, Jamie Carragher apologized for his behavior. You get that, that's part of being a public figure. "She was sat in a passenger seat while her dad was trying to have a bit of harmless banter". It went on for two or three times.

"What I would hope for the public who have known me for nearly 25 years in the public eye is that five seconds of madness will not take over everything I've done now". I lost my head.

"It is cowardly. How has the lad driving not driven after Jamie, rammed him, dragged him out of the vehicle and beat seven... you know what I mean?" he said.

They might've come to see James but instead watched the Lakers make one big final impression on the free-agent-to-be. The Cavs were no match for Randle, who produced one of the most impressive games of his career.

According to the Mirror, Carragher phoned the girl and her father on Sunday night and said: "I just want to apologise and I hope you are OK". The youngster told him: "OK, thanks for apologising".

Sky have confirmed that he has been suspended for his actions.

"I'm speaking with people and Sky and working out what is best for me and for Sky".

Carragher was arrested and cautioned for common assault in 2008 on Liverpool Road, Crosby, at around 9 am as he made his way to Liverpool training at Melwood.

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

Tweeting about the controversy on Monday evening, the former Manchester United defender stated that, although there can be no excusing Carragher's actions, he did not feel that the incident should cost his co-commentator his job.
