In the footage Carragher is seen spitting towards the fan's auto after the man taunted him about the result, however the innocent 14 year old who was sitting the front passenger seat was the victim as Carragher's saliva landed on her face.

The 14-year-old daughter of the United supporter was in the passenger seat and claims to have been hit in the face by Carragher's saliva.

It is not known how long Carragher will remain suspended for, but he appeared on Sky News in an interview with Sarah Hewson to try to explain his actions.

"Hopefully the family can accept that apology from me".

"It was nearly an out-of-body thing but you can't ever behave like that, it's unacceptable", he told Sky News on Monday.

He also put out his side of the story on Twitter and said that he was "goaded" 3-4 times along the motorway which prompted him to throw a mouthful of saliva toward the auto window of the rival fans.

"Obviously I've had Sky Sports, family, and the people most affected are the family involved".

Carragher is said to have phoned the girl and her father on Sunday night and said: "I just want to apologise and I hope you are OK".

"The biggest regret was that a young girl who wasn't involved was caught up in the incident". I've got a daughter exactly the same age and, if someone had done that, it's hard for me to find the words (for) the way I would react or what I would say if I ever bumped into them, because the way that father sees his daughter is the way I see mine.

The government welcomed Sky's decision to suspend Carragher. I apologise for it.

The Liverpool legend was being taunted by some Manchester United fans when he "lost his rag" on Saturday. If anyone had done that in the game I was commentating on I'd have vilified them for the next few days. "I was a role model, people looked to me".

"I'd be horrified at my own children, and what I've done, if I did have a five or six-year-old of my own I'd feel the same".

He had earlier added a second message about Carragher, writing: 'On a serious note, we all make mistakes, @Carra23 made a big one.

And judging by her latest emotional tweet, seeing Carragher abused in the same way has reminded of her of the ordeal she went through.

But there was also growing concern about his personal life last night as pals and the pundit himself hinted at secret troubles.
