After video emerged of ex-Liverpool star Jamie Carragher hocking a loogie at the car of a taunting driver and his daughter last weekend, Sky Sports announced that it had suspended Carragher—now one of its pundits—indefinitely while the company investigated the incident. Today, Sky has handed down its official punishment, which is a suspension for the rest of the season.
The Guardian has a statement from a Sky spokesperson:
“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.”
No word on what the shit-talking father’s reaction to the suspension is, though if we had to guess what he’d say, it would probably be something like “Oooooh! Sky Sports suspended me Carragher. Nice, very nice.”
