Jamie Carragher: Former Liverpool Defender Suspended By Sky Sports After Spitting Incident


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

The television pundit had been covering Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Manchester United for Sky on Saturday.

He apologised but Sky said it "takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions".

It added they had "made that clear to him in person" and "suspended him".

"It falls well below the standards we expect of our people," continued the statement.

A Danish television channel has also pulled Carragher from its coverage of Manchester United's Champions League game against Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday.


In the video obtained by the Mirror, Carragher exchanges waves with the girl's dad. Carragher then winds down his window while the girl's dad winds down his passenger side window. The dad can then be heard shouting: "Unlucky Jamie lad. Two, one."
Carragher reacts by leaning out of his window and spitting towards the car, hitting the girl, who is sitting in the front passenger seat.

On Sunday night he apologised on Twitter and said that while he was "goaded three/four times while being filmed", that there was "no excuse".
