Jamie Carragher has been suspended by Sky Sports until the end of the season for spitting at a Manchester United fan.
Carragher was temporarily taken off Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football coverage this week after being involved in an altercation with a United fan.
The pundit was filmed spitting at a United fan who was goading him over Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.
Many expected him to return soon after Sky grilled him over the incident on live TV, but he has now been suspended until the end of the season.
Sky released a statement declaring the suspension on Wednesday morning, saying:
“Following an internal review, Sky has suspended Jamie Carragher for the remainder of the football season.
“Jamie has taken full responsibility for what has happened and we will ensure he gets the help he needs to guarantee something like this never happens again.
“Before the start of the next season we will sit down with Jamie to discuss whether he is ready to return to his role.”
