Sky Sports suspends Jamie Carragher as football analyst

Sky has suspended former Liverpool player, Jamie Carragher as a football analyst until the end of the season.

The suspension came after the former England defender admitted spitting at a family in a car following Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

Carragher was filmed spitting towards a father and his 14-year-old daughter from his car window.

He has since apologised for the incident which occured during an altercation while he was driving away from Old Trafford after the match.

A statement from Sky said: “Following an internal review, Sky has suspended Jamie Carragher for the remainder of the football season.

“Jamie has taken full responsibility for what has happened and we will ensure he gets the help he needs to guarantee something like this never happens again.

“Before the start of the next season we will sit down with Jamie to discuss whether he is ready to return to his role.”
