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

The father has told the Mirror: "We don't want him to lose his job".

The 14-year-old daughter of the United supporter was in the passenger seat and claims to have been hit in the face by Carragher's saliva.

"He has spoken to the family and he has apologised personally, and when you make a mistake in life, and I've made worse ones than that, you have to own them".

Carragher has made appearances on Sky, BBC and ITV to apologise for his behaviour and does seem to appear genuinely sorry for his actions as he tries to make amends and rebuild his reputation.

A spokesman for Sky Sports said the former player's actions were "well below the standards we expect of our people". I've let Sky Sports down, my family and the family involved.

"I didn't to be honest (see the girl), she was leant back".

Busquets and Valverde sympathise with Gomes' Barcelona 'hell'
The Camp Nou is Europe's ultimate footballing theatre, but it is an unforgiving place to fluff your lines. He added: "On more than one occasion, I didn't want to leave my house".

"A moment of madness for four or five seconds".

In an interview with Sky, the former Liverpool and England defender said: 'It was nearly an out of body thing, but you can't ever behave like that - it's unacceptable.

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

You could clearly hear that the 14-year-old girl who was spat on was upset after the incident, and didn't sound particularly pleased at her dad's efforts.

'That devastates me more than anything - I've got a daughter exactly the same age and I can't say how I'd react if someone did that to her'.

Gary Neville - with whom Carragher has formed a highly-regarded punditry duet - said this was an "isolated incident" and hoped he would be able to continue in his role. "He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted".

And, speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Murphy said:"I felt a genuine remorse from him this morning".
