Jamie Carragher sorry for 'spitting at 14-year-old girl'

Jamie Carragher sorry for 'spitting at 14-year-old girl'

A Manchester United fan's auto happened to cross Jamie Carragher's Range Rover in the aftermath of the fixture and in a footage, he (the fan) was heard mocking Carragher by saying, "Unlucky Jamie lad - 2-1!" .

Manchester United's rivalry with Liverpool runs deep and they are far-and-away the two most decorated clubs in English football history.

Another user tweeted: "I have got a lot of time for Jamie Carragher but he should be sacked from his Sky Sports role".

However, his reputation took a major blow on Sunday night.

Ex-Liverpool star Carragher was caught on camera spraying a mouthful of gob at the open passenger window of a auto containing a pair of Man United fans - a dad and his daughter.

The video, obtained by the Mirror, shows Carragher react by spitting at a auto after being "goaded".

Carragher explained the goading had been persistent, but he accepted that was no excuse for his behaviour.

Mr Putin described the Kinzhal missile - named after a type of knife - as "an ideal weapon" while speaking at the annual state-of-the-nation address on March 1.

Defender Carragher has since apologised for spitting at the girl, saying: "I would like to apologise for my actions which were totally out of character".

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".

He definitely did "lose his rag". A male voice can be heard saying "unlucky Jamie lad, 2-1!" before Carragher spits. It went on for two or three times.

The dad yesterday denied abusing Carragher: "When we spotted him I was just shouting his name".

"I lost my head", Carragher told the Mirror. "I shouldn't have done it but I was thinking what is a grown man doing, carrying on like that two or three times with his daughter in the vehicle?"

Carragher is due to appear on Monday Night Football alongside his former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and Gary Neville for Stoke's clash with Manchester City on Monday evening.
