Jamie Carragher in trouble after Liverpool lost
One of the big stories in England on Monday centres on Jamie Carragher.
The former Liverpool defender is now a well-known pundit for Sky Sports.
But is that gig now in jeopardy of being taken away from Carragher?
That’s after video has spread on social media following Man United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.
Carragher spat at Man United fans
The video recording shows how Carragher was engaged by a Man United fan and his daughter on the road.
The dad was heard shouting “Hiya Jamie, it was 2-1”. After a few rounds of banter, Carragher reacted badly by spitting back.
In footage of the incident shot by the girl’s dad, the daughter can be heard saying: “He spat on me.”
The dad asked: “Where did it hit you?”
She replied: “On my face.”
Jamie Carragher breaks silence
Carragher is now being digged by journalists trying to get an update in the story.
That’s lead to the Press Association releasing new video of Carragher as he’s spoken about the spitting incident for the first time.
For the record, Carragher has apologised for his behaviour on social media.
Totally out of order & Ive apologised personally to all the family this evening. I was goaded 3/4 times along the motorway while being filmed & lost my rag. No excuse apologies. https://t.co/ofrNfiwhYH

In the new PA video, Carragher confirms he’s spoken to the family since the incident to apologise.
It appears that Carragher spoke to them on the phone on Sunday night.
Yet the pundit has admitted he still needs to apologise again.

Sacked in Scandinavia
It should be noted that Carragher’s career has already suffered after the spitting incident.
He was supposed to work as Champions League expert for Danish TV3+ this week for the Man United vs Sevilla game. But the Danish broadcasters have now confirmed that that job has now been pulled.
