Jamie Carragher

The video ends with the daughter of the other driver, who was sat in the passenger seat, saying Carragher's spit had hit her in the face.

Carragher who was seemingly not pleased with Liverpool's bitter loss to arch-rivals United, as per Mirror phoned the girl and her father to apologise.

The former Liverpool defender sparked fury as a video showed him appearing to spit at a 14-year-old girl. Watching those clips back is like an out of body experience. "No matter the circumstances, you can't ever behave like that".

'My biggest regret is for the 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of it, he told Sky News presenter Sarah Hewson. It won't happen again.

"It is hard for me to explain. I hate that she was involved more than anything".

Carragher will welcome the support offered up by Neville and now Sky will now weigh up their options over a popular pundit who has confirmed he has not offered to resign from his role.

All manner of football personalities have reacted with the likes of Danny Murphy, Vinnie Jones and Joey Barton wading in. "We have taken him off".

JC: It was a moment of madness.

According to Satchell, Diouf rang Sky to slam Carragher for his behaviour on Saturday.

Sky realise he's good box office, he's great business, and I'd be very surprised [if he was dimissed]. "It's down to Sky, but Sky would have a large subscription base of Manchester United fans, and also fathers and mothers - would they want to keep paying if he stays?" "It is disgusting. In all the years I've watched football, isn't it all about banter?" That devastates me more than anything.

He then posted: "On a serious note, we all make mistakes, @Carra23 made a big one". I've done that with the family, hopefully they accept that.

"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". Four or five seconds.

"You just think, 'why did I react like that?' That's part of being a public figure at times".

'I was spat at once during my career.

Carragher was also asked what his own family thought of the situation and appeared visibly upset.
