Jamie Carragher apologises to 14-year-old girl for spitting incident

Sky are set for talks with Carragher who has apologised to the 14-year-old girl

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports after a video was released, showing the pundit defender spitting towards passengers in another vehicle who had been taunting him after his former side lost 2-1 to Manchester United. We have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties. "It falls well below the standards we expect", Sky Sports said in a statement.

Furious Sky producers suspended him ahead of his planned appearance on Monday Night Football last night.

But the pièce de résistance came when the producers showed Carragher what his fellow pundits had made of his actions.

Erdogan said on Sunday Turkish troops and allied Syrian rebels were now just four to five kilometres from Afrin. Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army fighters are seen with villagers in eastern Afrin , Syria on March 9, 2018.

The former England global has since apologized for his actions but explained that the 14-year old school girl and her father goaded him, provoking him to react unacceptably. "It is disgusting. In all the years I've watched football, isn't it all about banter?", Mirror quoted her as saying.

"I was goaded three or four times along the motorway while being filmed and lost my rag".

"Jamie Carragher has been suspended from his duties as a football analyst for Sky after he was filmed spitting at a family in their auto following Liverpool's defeat against Manchester United on Saturday", said a statement from Sky Sports on their Twitter account. "I've let Sky Sports down, my family and the family involved", the Champions League victor said. My biggest regret is for the 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of it.

Defensive Tackle Danny Shelton Traded to New England Patriots
Shelton will provide depth for the Patriots' defensive tackle position that includes Malcom Brown and Lawrence Guy . It's expected that Shelton will act as a situational defensive tackle for the Patriots , primarily on rushing downs.

It is ironic that Carragher resorted to such vile behavior when he himself used to look down upon footballers who spat at one another.

"It's a poor message".

"That there was a young girl involved makes the perception of it worse, but I think whether it's a girl or a man, the spitting is wrong, let's face facts". Hopefully they accept that and I'd like to apologise again. "With the impact of story there was no need to send him to Old Trafford for the game", said Norrelund.
