Former Liverpool and England defender Jamie Carragher has apologised again for the “awful” spitting incident which led to his suspension by Sky Sports.

Carragher was filmed spitting from his car towards a girl in another vehicle after Liverpool’s 2-1 Premier League loss at Manchester United on Saturday.

Sky suspended the pundit, saying it takes the matter “extremely seriously”.

“Hopefully I’m judged not right now but over a longer period of time,” the 40-year-old told BBC Sport.

“Hopefully I’m given the opportunity to show people the real me, who they’ve seen for the last 20 years or so.”

Carragher made 737 appearances for Liverpool and won 38 England caps.

A Danish television channel has pulled him from its coverage of United’s Champions League game against Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

In the video obtained by the Mirror, Liverpudlian 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.

He apologised on Twitter on Sunday, and said he was “goaded three/four times while being filmed” but there was “no excuse”. (BBC)
