Carragher was filmed spitting towards a vehicle in which the driver was filming as he goaded the former Anfield star about Manchester United's 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.

We have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties.

He is due to appear tonight on Sky's Monday Night Football as a pundit for Stoke City's clash against Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Carragher also confirmed that he rang the girl and her dad to apologise for the incident, which both her mum and dad have thanked him for. "It is disgusting. In all the years I've watched football, isn't it all about banter?", Mirror quoted her as saying.


What the future holds for Carragher as a Sky Sports pundit remains to be seen, with the general public very much divided over whether he should keep his job or not.

The former Reds captain issued an apology on Sunday night, admitting he "lost his rag" after being goaded over Liverpool's 2-1 defeat on his journey home from the game. "I was a role model, people looked to me".

Fans noticed Carra seemed to choke back tears as he spoke about his family and his own 14-year-old daughter Mia, during an interview.

"I've got a daughter exactly the same age and it's hard to find the words I'd use on how I'd react to that or what I'd say to that person if I ever bumped into that person or something", he said.


"It's devastating for the family involved and I'm sorry for my actions", he said in the video below.

"I have brought shame on the name of football", Carragher said.

"It's a poor message".

"He's right to apologize", sports minister Tracey Crouch said.


Peter Norrelund, the channel's head of sport, said: "Jamie should have been at Old Trafford for us tomorrow and we have taken him off that".
