Jamie Carragher apologises, but is stood down by Sky Sports for spitting at Manchester United fans

FORMER Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher was suspended as a soccer analyst by the Sky television network on Monday after being filmed spitting in the direction of a 14-year-old girl through his car window.

Carragher said that while his future at the broadcaster “remains to be seen,” he had not offered his resignation.

Britain’s sports minister called Carragher’s behavior “disgusting.”

The incident happened on Saturday after Carragher left Old Trafford, where the former England international was working for Sky Sports at Manchester United’s game against Liverpool.
