Jamie Carragher has apologised to a 14-year-old girl for appearing to spit at her after Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Pic: Rex Features (Carragher has been a regular TV pundit since his retirement from football in 2013) Jamie Carragher has apologised after a video showed the former England and Liverpool defender spitting towards a girl in a auto from his own vehicle. The driver in question, who was accompanied by his 14-year-old daughter, can be heard uttering to himself - perhaps with some idea of what he was in possession of - "Jamie Carragher spat on my daughter. nice".

Reports said that some of Carragher's spit hit the face of the girl, who was sitting in the passenger seat.

Tonight, Carragher, 40, posted on Twitter: "Totally out of order and I've apologised personally to all the family this evening".

The former England global made no excuses for his conduct and said he lost his rag after being goaded on a number of occasions on the motorway.
