Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports for spitting on a 14-year old girl and her dad.

Carragher was filmed by the girl’s dad spiting on them after an exchange of banter on Saturday.

The incident happened on the motorway after the English Premier League game between Manchester United and Liverpool on Saturday.

The girl’s dad is a fan of Red Devils who won the tie 2-1.

Though he has spoken to the family and apologized, Carragher, a pundit with Sky Sports, was suspended on Monday after the action that fell below the company’s standard.

"Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions, we have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties. It falls well below the standards we expect of our people.”

It is not known how long Carragher will remain suspended for, but he has been removed from Monday’s scheduled live Premier League clash.
