Murphy on ex-Liverpool teammate Carragher: I've spoken to him

Murphy on ex-Liverpool teammate Carragher: I've spoken to him

Video footage showed the Liverpool legend spitting in the direction of a man and his 14-year-old daughter after his former club's defeat to Manchester United.

She was left in tears after his saliva hit her in the face and said he should have "taken it as a joke" when her father shouted "2-1, 2-1, unlucky Jamie lad, 2-1 lad" following Liverpool's loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

He apologised but Sky said it "takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions".

"That has devastated me more than anything".

And BBC presenter Lineker has joked about the former defender after he was omitted from Sky's MNF coverage for tonight's Stoke vs Manchester City clash.

"What I would hope for the public who have known me for nearly 25 years in the public eye is that five seconds of madness will not take over everything I've done now".

The dad said "a bit of banter" with the 40-year-old Sky Sports pundit turned ugly after he mentioned the 2-1 scoreline.

"I thought it was a bit unusual Diouf calling after all the times he has been caught spitting at people, but when I spoke to him he was absolutely raging at what Carragher had done", said Satchell.

"I am speaking to people at Sky and working at the best way forward".

"If I'd been filmed "gobbing", with a massive amount of spit in my mouth, at anyone, let alone a 14-year-old girl, I can tell you I would not be on air here today", Eamonn said.

RadioTimes.com understands that a decision about Carragher's future at Sky has yet to be made. Hopefully I can get the chance again to apologise or maybe meet up with the family to show how sorry I really am.

Jamie Carragher, who has also played for England, issued an apology following his impetuous and obnoxious act of spitting at a 14-year-old girl from his car's window.

"No excuses he's made a big mistake", Neville wrote on Twitter.

"I have brought shame on the name of football", Carragher said.

"You just think, 'why did I react like that?' That's part of being a public figure at times". "He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted".

At first the driver is unaware of what has happened and laughs until the girl says: 'He spat at me'. We want to hear from him what happened.
