Jamie Carragher Suspended By Sky Sports After Spitting Incident

GK David De Gea

Carragher was goaded in the aftermath of the Anfield club's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday and lost his cool, winding down his window and spitting at the passenger side of another vehicle.

Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions.

"[It was] a moment of madness that really is hard for me to explain".

Carragher, who made over 500 appearances at the heart of Liverpool's defense but never actually won the Premier League, was driving from United's Old Trafford stadium where he had been providing expert commentary, when he was goaded by the fan.

There was an exchange of words in which the girl was asking Carragher about the game and winding him up about United's victory. Both men wind down their windows and the father shouts: "Unlucky Jamie lad".

Carragher reacts by leaning out of his window and spitting towards the auto, hitting the girl, who is sitting in the front passenger seat.

"He said he wanted to take the chance to tell Carragher how badly he had behaved and to look at himself before trying to judge anyone else". When I was brought up as a kid, spitting was that and I'll never do it again.

"I'm sure there will be repercussions for him and he'll take them on the chin, but all you can do when you do mess up is hold your hands up and try and deal with it the best you can. Looking at her, you know she is a child", she said.

And asked about his future he replied, "It remains to be seen, it's their [Sky] decision".

"When I lost it, my rage was focused on the man across me with a camera in his hand, but no matter what he was doing my reaction was unacceptable".

Jamie Carragher has said he will "apologise again properly" over a spitting incident at the weekend.

Donald Trump says USA should consider death penalty for drug dealers
Greg Rothman serves with Sacconne in the Pennsylvania legislature and worked on the team that helped Trump win in the state. Trump said people who kill just one person get the death penalty , while drug dealers can kill 5,000 people with drugs.

Speaking to Alan Brazil on talkSPORT radio, Jones said: "It is cowardly. This a bad stain on me, my character, my career".

He tweeted: 'I've just watched @Carra23 say sorry. I apologise for it. They have been dragged into this media storm by myself because of my actions. It is vile but let me assure you now - I would have preferred Lucas Neill to have spat at me the day he broke my leg in September 2003!

"Obviously I've had Sky Sports, family, and the people most affected are the family involved".

As the Sky Sports pundit today met with TV bosses, the web was flooded with a series of amusing pictures and video poking fun at the star.

Carragher retired from professional football at the end of the 2012-13 campaign.

"There are times in life where we mess up and we do things we regret big time".

"I love my job and would love the opportunity to stay".

He then posted: "On a serious note, we all make mistakes, @Carra23 made a big one".

"It would have been like sending him into a lion's den". "He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted".

"I've been on TV for three years with him and imo [in my opinion] this isolated incident shouldn't stop us working together".

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has been suspended from his job. "I hate that she was involved more than anything".
