Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky for the rest of the football season for spitting towards a father and his daughter from his car window, the broadcaster has announced.

Carragher contacted the United fan, a 42-year-old from North Wales called Andy Hughes, on Sunday to apologise to him and his daughter.

He has also apologised publicly and has today posted another message on Twitter taking full responsibility after it emerged that Hughes and his family have received abuse for his role in the incident.

Hughes was warned by the police for using his phone to film Carragher while both were driving but no further action will be taken and the ex-England defender has asked his Twitter followers to "please leave the family alone".
