Jamie Carragher is removed from first TV pundit role after spitting at Manchester United fan and 14-year-old daughter

Jamie Carragher has been culled from his TV punditry commitments for the Champions League this week following his spit storm.
Carragher was due to act as a summariser for Manchester United's Champions League clash with Sevilla on Tuesday night for Danish channel TV3 Sport.
But the station have announced that they have removed the Liverpool legend from their line-up following the emergence of a shameful video.
Carragher was caught on camera reacting to taunts from United fans after they beat Liverpool 2-1 on Saturday.
The incident, which occurred while he was driving, ended when the 40-year-old wound down his window and spat in the direction of the fans.

"It does not look good," TV3 Sport executive director Peter Nørrelund told Ekstra Bladet.
"He should have been at Old Trafford tomorrow for United-Sevilla, and we have chosen to sit over.

"We have sent an employee to Liverpool so we can get the story from the horse's mouth."
"Whether it's about the receptionist or Jamie Carragher, we do not fire people before we've heard them.
"It does not look cool. But we are all people. We would like to hear him about it and hear what happened. Let's get it in place first."
