Footie pundit and ex-Liverpool ace Jamie Carragher filmed spitting in a 14-year-old girl's face

Carragher’s Range Rover had pulled up beside her United-supporting dad’s car in heavy traffic after Saturday’s Old Trafford match.

Video shows him spitting at the girl after her dad yelled: “Unlucky Jamie lad — 2-1!”

Carragher, 40, faces the sack from Sky Sports.

Carragher said sorry for spitting in the girl's face on Sunday.

The defender said: “I would like to apologise for my actions which were totally out of character.

“What I did was wrong and I have since personally apologised to the family involved.” The Sky football pundit spat from his Range Rover’s window after pulling up beside the United-supporting dad’s car in heavy traffic after Saturday’s Old Trafford match.

Video footage shows how the pair exchanged an initial wave, before the dad shouted: “Unlucky Jamie lad!” and “2-1!”

When the teasing continued Carragher spat — hitting the teenager who was in the passenger seat and leaving her in tears.

Carragher yesterday said he had been “goaded.”

He added: “I was continually goaded and verbally abused numerous times whilst being filmed in slow moving traffic and reacted in a way that is of course regretful.”

Police can bring assault charges over spitting — or prosecute as a public order offence.

Carragher, 40, has said previously in a football column that players spitting at each other is “vile”.

The dad yesterday denied abusing Carragher: “When we spotted him I was just shouting his name. I was not rude or offensive.



“He responded by spitting at my daughter.

“Carragher comes across on TV as a decent guy who likes a laugh.

“But who would behave in this way? It’s inhuman.

“Who would spit in the face of a 14-year-old girl?”

Sky Sports said: “It’s unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie.”
