Jamie Carragher has apologised to a teenage girl after he spat in her face and her mum branded him “disgusting”.
The Liverpool legend was caught on camera aiming a mouthful of saliva at the passenger window of a car containing the 14-year-old Manchester United fan and her dad after Saturday’s Red Devils victory over the Anfield outfit.
She claimed the spittle hit her on the forehead and made her cry.
The dad said “a bit of banter” with the former defender turned ugly after he mentioned the 2-1 scoreline. And he insisted the TV star must have seen his daughter in the passenger seat.
A Sky Sports spokesperson said: “It’s unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie.”
Carragher has already been culled from his duties as a pundit for Danish channel TV3 Sport on Tuesday night, where he was supposed to review Manchester United’s clash with Sevilla.
In footage of the incident shot by the girl’s dad, she can be heard saying: “He spat on me.” He asks her: “Where did it hit you?” She replies: “On my face.”
