Jamie Carragher has apologised to a 14-year-old girl for appearing to spit at her after Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday. "We've made that clear to him in person and suspended him from his duties".

A spokesman for Sky said Carragher's behaviour "falls well below the standards we expect of our people".

In an emotional interview on Sky News, Carragher expressed regret at the incident and reiterated that he has personally apologised to the family involved.

His actions have been widely condemned in England, with former Wimbledon hardman Vinnie Jones branding Carragher as "filth", while former Manchester City midfielder Joey Barton described the spitting shame as "absolute madness".

In the video obtained by the Mirror, Carragher exchanges waves with the girl's dad.

The Liverpudlian is due at the Sky Sports studios on Monday in preparation for tonight's show, but he will also have a meeting with chiefs at the broadcaster's headquarters.

"It's the only time I've reacted like that, it's the only time I'll ever react like that.

I apologise for it, I'm getting vilified and rightly so", stated Carragher. "I've let Sky Sports down, my family and the family involved", the Champions League victor said.

"It's a poor message". They have made it be known they are very disappointed and I understand that. Peter Nørrelund, head of sport at TV3 Sport, said: "It would have been like sending him into a lion's den".
