Driver in Jamie Carragher spitting incident has been contacted by police

The fallout from Jamie Carragher's "moment of madness" continues.

Greater Manchester Police have spoken to the man who filmed the former Liverpool player spitting at his car while both were driving on Saturday.

Enquiries are ongoing, though it is understood that Carragher has yet to be contacted by police.

Though both men could face punishment, it is believed that the motorist will not be prosecuted, but instead cautioned regarding his use of a mobile phone while driving.

The police contacted the man directly after his video went viral after being obtained by The Mirror.

Carragher, who attempted to explain his actions while offering a further public apology on Sky News on Monday, has said that he will accept whatever consequences comes his way.

"Watching those clips back, it feels almost like an out-of-body thing," he said on Sky News.


"It was just that moment of madness for four or five seconds. No matter what the circumstances, for anyone, you can't ever behave like that, that is just unacceptable."

The popular pundit was absent from Monday Night Football this week, having been officially suspended by Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, the family involved has claimed that he has shown them "genuine remorse" over the incident.

Speaking to the Mirror on Monday night, the father of the 14-year-old girl at the centre of the spitting storm said that they do not want him sacked.

"We don’t want him to lose his job," he sad. "It is not about that. We wanted an apology and an explanation.

"He seems contrite. Everyone makes mistakes, we are all human."
