Ex-England worldwide Carragher was filmed spitting at the family as he drove away after the Reds' 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

The ex-Liverpool player was seemingly being wound up by a man while driving on the motorway, which goaded Carra into winding down his window and spitting at the vehicle, with some of the spit landing on the man's daughter.

Lineker's quip was quickly pounced upon by a colleague of Carragher's, Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves, who very definitely failed to see the amusing side.

The clip, which has swept the United Kingdom, has divided many.

"Carragher, who joined Sky Sports after retiring as a player in 2013, has become one of the station's most popular and respected pundits, working regularly alongside former United defender Gary Neville", the Mirror noted.

But as the spotlight continues to focus on him, authorities are also looking at the guy who captured the footage on his phone.

Though both men could face punishment, it is believed that the motorist will not be prosecuted, but instead cautioned regarding his use of a mobile phone while driving. Greater Manchester Police reportedly aren't likely to slap the usual £200 fine and six penalty points, and instead will offer "advice". It went on for two or three times.

"It was a moment of madness, it's hard for me to explain", Carragher said to presenter Sarah Hewson. No matter what the circumstances you can't ever behave like that.

"It was nearly an out-of-body thing but you can't ever behave like that, it's unacceptable", he told Sky News on Monday.

Asked if he deserves to keep his job, he replied: "There's no doubt what I have done is disgusting, I'm getting vilified and rightly so". My biggest regret is for the 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of it.

"It's just that moment of madness for four or five seconds".

Jamie Carragher's hopes of avoiding the sack by Sky Sports have received a timely lift after the family he spat at insisted they did not want him to lose his job. In any way shape or form, where you are, who you represent. It is not about that.

He told the Mirror: "We wanted an apology and an explanation". He is only human and we all make mistakes.
