Jamie Carragher

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher could face up to six months jail term over spit incident as cops reveal they want to speak to the ex-England man who Andy Hughes, a die-hard Manchester United fan from Colwyn Bay, north Wales caught on camera spitting at his daughter after his side beat Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Spitting at someone is classed as common assault, punishable by up to six months in prison.

Carragher, suspended from his £1million Sky Sports pundit role, has apologised for spitting at the young girl.

According to SunSports, Greater Manchester Police have spoken to Mr Hughes but do not plan to prosecute him. Using a phone at the wheel is illegal and drivers can be given a £200 fine and six penalty points.

Mr Hughes, who claims on social media to "hate Scousers", allegedly goaded Carragher over the result, saying "2-1, 2-1, unlucky Jamie lad" while laughing and filming him.
