In a video of the incident, the teenager's father repeatedly mentioned Saturday's score - Liverpool lost 2-1 - before Carragher spat.

Carragher who was seemingly not pleased with Liverpool's bitter loss to arch-rivals United, as per Mirror phoned the girl and her father to apologise.

The former Liverpool defender arrived in London to meet with his bosses at Sky Sports after he appeared to spit at a 14-year-old girl.

"I'm speaking with people and Sky and working out what is best for me and for Sky". Driving away from Old Trafford the family of United supporters spotted Carragher in his vehicle next to them in traffic.

He tweeted: "Totally out of order & Ive apologised personally to all the family this evening".

He said: "There's no doubt what I have done is disgusting, I'm getting vilified and rightly so".

"Everyone will have their own views but I can give more context with regard the person he is and the build up to him doing it".

"I just have no excuse, it's devastating for the family involved".

The revolting video where Carragher can be seen spitting mouthful of frustrated contempt was shot by the girl's father.

A huge 77 per cent of football fans believe Sky should give Carragher the boot permanently.

"But there's a little bit of context needed in thinking he saw a young girl and chose to spit at her, that's not quite how it was in his moment of madness". This won't be nice for them, especially the 14-year-old girl. I spoke to the family last night and I want to apologise as much as I can'.

"They will be aware of the media storm", he said.

Carragher, who made over 500 appearances at the heart of Liverpool's defense but never actually won the Premier League, was driving from United's Old Trafford stadium where he had been providing expert commentary, when he was goaded by the fan.

Carragher wrote: "As usual, there have been a number of people who have said, 'It is the worst thing that can happen on a pitch".
