Sky Sports have suspended Jamie Carragher after a video footage was released showing the football pundit spit at a 14-year old girl from his car.
A statement from Sky Sports said: “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.”
Acknowledging the impact of his actions, Callagher said: “The world that we live in now, with social media, a lot of people will have seen this clip. It’s the lowest of the low, and I’ll never do it again.”
Former Wimbledon player Vinnie Jones commented on the incident saying: “Spitting at 14-year-olds through a window? He is presenting on the TV. For Christ’s sake, he is supposed to be one of the top men. You can’t condone that whatsoever. It is filth, it is absolute filth.”
