The 40-year-old contacted the girl's family yesterday and apologised profusely for and incident that he described as being 'totally out of order and unacceptable'. I drove away at first and it just continued.

Another user tweeted: "I have got a lot of time for Jamie Carragher but he should be sacked from his Sky Sports role. I shouldn't have done it, but I was thinking what is a grown man doing, carrying on like that two or three times with his daughter in the vehicle?" I thought it was a Liverpool fan at first wanting an autograph at first so I stopped. "No excuse apologies", Carragher posted on Twitter.

A Sky Sports spokeman said: "It's unacceptable behaviour and we will be addressing it with Jamie".
