Jamie Carragher passionately celebrated Liverpool's late winner against Everton

When asked why he did it, Carragher called it a "moment of madness". Stoke this evening but the broadcaster has now announced his suspension.

"They have made it be known they are very disappointed and I understand".

Carragher's Sky Sports colleague Gary Neville, meanwhile says he sees no reason the pair can't work together again.

The 40-year-old, a Telegraph columnist, has been suspended from his duties by Sky Sports following the incident, which he described as a "moment of madness".

A spoksperson for Sky Sports said: "It is unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie".

Carragher, who played for England 38 times, arrived at London Euston train station on Monday morning before taking a chauffeur motorcycle to the Sky headquarters on the outskirts of the capital.

"The biggest regret is for a 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of this of my altercation with the father".

"I've just watched @Carra23 say sorry".

Nørrelund said that the station is keen to discuss the issue with Carragher before deciding whether or not to take any further action. "I hate that she was involved more than anything".

The former Liverpool defender is fighting to save his job after shocking footage emerged last night.

"Four or five seconds, no matter what the circumstances are for anyone you can't behave like that".

"No excuses he's made a big mistake", Neville wrote on Twitter. In the past, Carragher has used his platform as an analyst to condemn spitting in football. "This is a bad stain on my character and my career".

"That devastates me more than anything".

Now working in the media, Carragher was covering Saturday's encounter at Old Trafford and then found himself involved in an unseemly incident on the motorway afterwards.

Carragher added he has not offered his resignation and the future of his role is "Sky's decision".
