Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been suspended from his role as a Sky Sports pundit until the end of the season.

Carragher was filmed on Saturday spitting out of his car window at a man and his daughter.

The ex-England international has repeatedly apologised for his actions since the video emerged of the incident.

He was quickly suspended by Sky Sports - missing his usual role as part of Monday Night Football this week - and this has now been extended until the end of the current Premier League campaign in May.

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.

Greater Manchester Police later confirmed that Carragher would not face criminal charges regarding the incident, but the man who filmed it will need to attend a driving improvement course.
