Rachel Riley posts emotional tweet after the Jamie Carragher spitting incident

Sky are set for talks with Carragher who has apologised to the 14-year-old girl

BC-SOC-Carragher-Spitting, 2nd Ld-Writethru, 433Sky suspends former Liverpool player Carragher for spittingAP Photo LON106Eds: Updates with more detail, quotes.

In the footage Carragher is seen spitting towards the fan's vehicle 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.

After Sky announced his suspension, Carragher described it as "a moment of madness and not representative of the real me", according to Sky Sports News. Carragher was caught on camera, spitting at a fan and his daughter after his former side's latest defeat against bitter rivals United at the Old Trafford in the Premier League.

"That's the biggest regret, obviously I've lots of regrets from what happened, but the biggest is for the 14-year-old girl". "I hate that she was involved more than anything". "I've got a daughter exactly the same age and I can't say how I'd react if someone did that to her".

Carragher was due to appear on Monday Night Football alongside Brendan Rodgers and Gary Neville for coverage of Manchester City vs.

Asked to explain why he should remain with the broadcaster, Carragher, who said he has not offered his resignation, told Sky News: "There's no doubt what I have done is disgusting, I'm getting vilified and rightly so".

Sky Sports has suspended the 40-year-old, and he has apologised various times on live television.

In the video the father of the girl can be heard shouting: "Unlucky Jamie lad".

Sky said Carragher's actions were "well below the standards we expect of our people".

"Again, all I can do right now is apologise as much as possible. He seems contrite. Everyone makes mistakes, we are all human". "That is Sky's decision, not my decision", he said. The former worldwide footballer reacted by spitting him.

'I've been on TV for 3 years with him and [in my opinion] this isolated incident shouldn't stop us working together'.

"Hopefully the family can accept that apology from me". They've made it be known there that they're very disappointed and understandably so. As I've said, it's hard to explain, the moment of madness - four or five seconds where I've lost it, basically - and I've made a huge mistake and I've apologised for that.
