Liverpool great Jamie Carragher spits at 14-year-old Manchester United fangirl

Video footage showed the Liverpool legend spitting in the direction of a man and his 14-year-old daughter after his former club's defeat to Manchester United.

"Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions", Sky said in a statement.

"I'll be vilified for it and rightly so. All I can do is apologise and try to get back to being the person I am".

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. And he insisted the TV star must have seen his daughter in the passenger seat.

Carragher had initially told The Mirror: "It was a bit more than, "Hiya Jamie, it was 2-1".

Murphy believes Carragher - whose own duaghter is of a similar age - when he said he didn't know the girl was in the vehicle, but admits what he did was "despicable" nevertheless. I was goaded 3/4 times along the motorway while being filmed & lost my rag.

"I asked whether this was anything to with the fact that they hate each other's guts but Diouf said it was his moral compass that forced him to ring in". When I was brought up as a kid, spitting was that and I'll never do it again.

"It's a stain on my character and I have to accept that". Your fans, people who have looked up to you, what do you say to them.

"If I was watching someone do that, I'd be commenting or tweeting about it myself", he said.

"Spitting at anybody is despicable - he knows that, I know that, anybody listening knows that", Murphy added on talkSPORT.

Neville didn't excuse Carragher's behaviour, but said he shouldn't lose his job for what was an "isolated incident".

Carragher has apologised for his behaviour, but insisted he was provoked by the man. I wish she wasn't involved. I spoke to the family last night and I want to apologise as much as I can'.

Speaking to Sky News, the ex-Liverpool defender called it "a moment of madness". Sky suspended Beagrie when they became aware of the case and fired him when a judgment was reached.
