Sky Sports television pundit Jamie Carragher, the former Liverpool FC defender, has apologised after a video emerged of him spitting towards a girl in a car from his own vehicle.

The 40-year-old was on his way home after summarising on Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday when he apparently became involved in a conversation with the occupants of an adjacent car.

A video taken from the car, released on the website of several British newspapers, clearly shows Carragher spitting.

In the video the father of the girl can be heard shouting: “Unlucky Jamie lad. Two, one.”

“Totally out of order and I’ve apologised personally to all the family this evening,” Carragher said on Twitter.

“I was goaded 3/4 times along the motorway while being filmed and lost my rag. No excuses, apologies.”

Sky Sports described Carragher’s actions as “unacceptable” and said it would be addressing the incident with him.

Carragher, who joined Sky Sports after retiring in 2013, has become a popular pundit working regularly alongside former United defender Gary Neville.
