Don't sack Jamie Carragher, spitting victim's family urge Sky

Don't sack Jamie Carragher, spitting victim's family urge Sky

Footage filmed by the parent and obtained by the Daily Mirror shows the father tease Carragher about the result as the pair drive alongside each other after the game.

In an initial tweet on Sunday night, he wrote: "Totally out of order and I've apologised personally to all the family this evening".

Carragher then winds down the window of his black SUV and spits towards the auto.

In a video of the incident, the teenage girl's father repeatedly mentioned the score in the match and Carragher is heard to say, "Alright", before appearing to spit at the auto alongside his.

FORMER football hardman Vinnie Jones has been wrongly outed as the father suspended Sky pundit Jamie Carragher claimed goaded him into spitting in a schoolgirl's face.

The former Liverpool man has apologised for his actions, insisting: "There's lots of regrets for what has happened but certainly the biggest one is for the 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of this. I'd like to apologise once more to them all".

One wrote: "For me the father is to blame for driving in a vehicle with his daughter and filming an ex-footballer".

Carragher, who attempted to explain his actions while offering a further public apology on Sky News on Monday, has said that he will accept whatever consequences comes his way.




"It falls well below the standards we expect of our people".

The girl's father said the family "don't want him to lose his job". We wanted an apology and an explanation.

'He seems contrite. Everyone makes mistakes, we are all human'.

His wife added: "He did seem extremely sorry".

The fall-out continues from footage of Carragher spitting through his auto window at a teenage girl in another vehicle, who was goading him about Liverpool's defeat at Manchester United. He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted.

He tweeted: "I've just watched Carra23 say sorry".

"I've been on TV for three years with him and imo [in my opinion] this isolated incident shouldn't stop us working together".
