    The former Liverpool defender-turned sportscaster Jamie Carragher had already apologized to the family, but his current employer took him off "Monday Night Football" broadcast following a meeting.

    The confrontation took place following Manchester United 2-1 win over the Anfield outfit on Saturday as Carragher was driving from the stadium where he covered the match for Sky.

    The footage, shot by the 14-year-old Red Devils fan's dad, shows the Former Liverpool man aiming a mouthful of saliva at the passenger window of their car.

    ​The dad claims he only said "a bit of banter" to Carragher, bringing up the 2-1 scoreline, before he spat at them, hitting his daughter's face, but the 40-year-old has a slightly different account.

    "It was a bit more than, "Hiya Jamie, it was 2-1." It went on for two or three times. I drove away at first and it just continued. I lost my head. I shouldn't have done it but I was thinking what is a grown man doing, carrying on like that two or three times with his daughter in the car?" said Carragher according to The Mirror.
