Shocking footage emerged of the TV pundit and Liverpool legend spitting at a young girl after her father teased him about Manchester United's 2-1 win over the Reds.

The former Liverpool defender had been covering Saturday lunchtime's match for Sky between his old club and United at Old Trafford and was on his way home when the incident occurred.

In the video, the father repeatedly mentions the score and Carragher is heard to say, "Alright", before appearing to spit at the auto alongside his vehicle.

'Totally out of order and I've apologised personally to all the family this evening, ' he said on Twitter. While he said that he was goaded three or four times while driving on the motorway, he said there were "no excuses" for his behaviour. I thought it was a Liverpool fan at first wanting an autograph at first so I stopped. "I was angry and upset because my daughter was crying".

Jamie Carragher faces a nervous wait to discover whether or not he will lose his job at Sky after being caught up in a spitting storm.

She responded: "OK, thanks for apologising". It carried on and I drove away but it carried on again and I lost my head. "It went on for two or three times", Carragher said.

Unfortunately, his 32-word apology doesn't look like being the end of the story for Carragher, with Sky also confirming that they plan to reassess their £1million-a-year contract with the pundit.

"I shouldn't have done it but I was thinking - what is a grown man doing, carrying on like that two or three times with his daughter in the vehicle?"
