Driver in Jamie Carragher spitting incident has been contacted by police

Driver in Jamie Carragher spitting incident has been contacted by police

"Watching those clips back, it feels nearly like an out-of-body thing", he said on Sky News.

Greater Manchester Police have spoken to the man who filmed the former Liverpool player spitting at his auto while both were driving on Saturday.

"Obviously I've done that with the family, hopefully they accept that, and I'd like to apologise again to them".

The 40-year-old former England global was summoned for talks with Sky Sports who had earlier described his actions as "unacceptable".

Talking to Sky News of his shame, Carragher said: "I have no excuse and it is devastating for the family involved and my own family, but it is my actions which have brought that on. No matter what the circumstances, for anyone, you can't ever behave like that, that is just unacceptable".

Jamie Carragher's hopes of avoiding the sack by Sky Sports have received a timely lift after the family he spat at insisted they did not want him to lose his job.

"The biggest regret, certainly, is for the 14 year old girl to be caught in the middle of this, and my altercation with the father". I apologise for it. I can't go back.


The incident took place near Manchester United's Old Trafford ground after Carragher watched his former side Liverpool lose 2-1 on Saturday.

Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves has been working alongside Carragher since 2013 and was not amused by Lineker's light-hearted post.

Cops are now looking to quiz ex-England and Liverpool star Carragher, 40.

Danish broadcaster TV3 has also dropped Carragher from their coverage of Manchester United's Champions League tie against Sevilla on Tuesday.

It remains unclear whether Sky Sports will allow him to return.

Referring to himself in the third person, Mr Hughes wrote: "Do you think the "bloke" is actually delighted that his daughter has been spat at or do you think his daughter was scared and "the bloke" didn't want to start screaming and running after Carragher and scare her even more?"
