Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports after a video was released, showing the pundit defender spitting towards passengers in another car who had been taunting him after his former side lost 2-1 to Manchester United.

Carragher apologised for the incident but Sky have decided to suspend him and in a statement, they justified their decision:

Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie’s actions. We have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties. It falls well below the standards we expect of our people.

Carragher will not feature on tonight’s edition of Monday Night Football and it remains to be seen if and when he’ll be back on our TV screens.
