Fans bombard ex-Liverpool star Jamie Carragher with abuse

‘You Scouse b******!’ Manchester City fans bombard ex-Liverpool star Jamie Carragher with abuse after bumping into him at a service station

  • Video filmed at a service station shows Jamie Carragher being verbally abused
  • Supporters are heard shouting ‘you Scouse b*****d! as he enters the services
  • The Sky Sports pundit can be seen getting angry and shouting back at fans 
  • It came after he returned to his punditry job after he was suspended for spitting at a schoolgirl

Football pundit Jamie Carragher was bombarded with abuse by Manchester City fans at a service station.

A shocking video shows supporters shouting ‘You Scouse b*****d’ at the former Liverpool defender on Sunday.

Carragher, 40, who was suspended from his job at Sky Sports last season for spitting at a schoolgirl, can be seen shouting back at the group giving him abuse.

The incident at a Moto service station came after he returned to his job at the channel for City’s Premier League clash with Arsenal. 

Footage of the row was shared on the Away Fans Instagram page.

Several supporters praised Carragher for not getting too involved, with one user posting: ‘Some right cringy [sic] City fans giving it large inside a coach wonder what they’d do if Carra knocked one of them clean out.’

Carragher was dropped in March from his £1million Sky Sports job until the end of the season for spitting at a 14-year-old girl.   

After the incident police said they had recorded it as an assault – but no action would be taken against Carragher because it was not in the public interest to charge him.

Manchester United fan Andy Hughes, 42, filmed Sky’s Monday Night Football pundit spit at his car while his 14-year-old daughter sat in the passenger seat.

Carragher apparently lost his temper after being goaded by the die-hard United fan about Liverpool’s loss to their bitter rivals on March 10.

The player apologised for his ‘moment of madness’. Spitting is a common assault and is punishable by a £5,000 fine, community order or up to six months in prison.

Several ex-players came out to offer their support following the incident, including his fellow Sky pundit and former United defender Gary Neville. 

Mr Hughes was spoken to by police for using his phone while driving and told he will face no further action. 

Just three weeks after his suspension from Sky Sports, he was picked up by TV3 Sport, a Danish broadcaster, to cover the Champions League.

It is understood the ex-Premier League star had sessions with a psychiatrist before returning to his £1million-a-year role with Sky on a final warning.
