Former Liverpool defender was removed by Sky Sports after the video appeared on social media

Geoff Shreeves and Gary Lineker have been involved in a bitter row on social media after the BBC Match of the Day presenter made a joke at Jamie Carragher's expense, following the former Liverpool defender's suspension from Sky Sports.

Suspended Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher winced and issued a grovelling apology as he was forced to watch vile footage of him spitting at a 14-year-old girl.

A motorist had filmed himself goading the ex-Liverpool star after the side's defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

A video taken from the auto, released on the website of several British newspapers, clearly shows Carragher spitting.

The ex-England global has spoken to the family and the daughter to personally apologise, but the incident has triggered widespread debate about whether or not Carragher should lose his job as a football analyst, with Sky Sports taking the immediate decision to suspend him pending further talks.

The girl tells her father "he spat on me", to which he responds: "Jamie Carragher spat at my daughter. nice, nice, very nice Jamie Carragher". "That devastates me more than anything".

"I have brought shame on the name of football", Carragher said. "I'm sorry. I'll apologise again today (Monday) properly", said Carragher.

"A moment of madness". "No matter the circumstances, you can't ever behave like that".

"Whatever someone's done I hate angry mob bullying", Rachel said last night.

He said his "biggest regret was that a young girl was caught up in the middle of the altercation". "I've got a daughter exactly the same age and I can't say how I'd react if someone did that to her".

'But what I'd hope, not just for Sky, but the public... is that five seconds of madness will not take over everything from what I've done [in the past]'.

"No excuses he's made a big mistake", Neville wrote on Twitter. "I've been on TV for 3 years with him and imo (in my opinion) this isolated incident shouldn't stop us working together".
