Gary Neville's Priceless Reaction To Awkward Question Posed To Jamie Carragher On Sky Sports

Gary Neville had a priceless reaction to Jamie Carragher being asked a question that referenced spitting at someone.

Both Monday Night football pundits were on Sky Sports alongside host Kelly Cates, who was asking the former Liverpool defender about Luis Suarez biting Branislav Ivanovic back in 2013.

But in her phrasing of the question, Cates said, "If you have a player that spits that's disgusting". While she wasn't referring to Carragher spitting at a Manchester United and his 14-year old daughter, Neville couldn't help but see the funny side.

Back in 2018, the former Liverpool defender was driving in his car and being goaded by a United fan after the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford, which he was in attendance for.

The supporter was heard saying "Unlucky Jamie lad!" and "2-1!". After the supporter wound his window down, Carragher reacted by spitting towards them.

In the clip filmed by the Dad, the girl says "He spat on me" and adds, "On my face" when he asks where it hit her.

Carragher, who was extremely remorseful for his actions and spoke to the family involved, was suspended by Sky before he was gradually introduced back onto TV alongside Neville.

Despite the two being rivals in their respective careers, Neville supported Carragher despite condemning his conduct.

Taking to Twitter at the time, Neville wrote: "I've just watched Carragher say sorry [on Sky News]. No excuses he's made a big mistake.

"He's massively passionate about football and he's overstepped the mark and shouldn't have reacted. 'I've been on TV for thre [sic] years with him and in my opinion this isolated incident shouldn't stop us working together."
