Jamie Carragher has apologised to a teenage girl after he spat in her face and her mum branded him “disgusting”.
The Liverpool legend was caught on camera aiming a mouthful of saliva at the passenger window of a car containing the 14-year-old Manchester United fan and her dad after Saturday’s Red Devils victory over the Anfield outfit.
She claimed the spittle hit her on the forehead and made her cry.
The dad said “a bit of banter” with the former defender turned ugly after he mentioned the 2-1 scoreline. And he insisted the TV star must have seen his daughter in the passenger seat.
Carragher, who had been covering the match as a Sky Sports pundit, phoned the girl and her father on Sunday night and said: “I just want to apologise and I hope you are OK.” The youngster told him: “OK, thanks for apologising.”
He had earlier admitted he was in the wrong but claimed he lost the plot after the ribbing went on too long.
