Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football say nothing about Jamie Carragher’s suspension as Brendan Rodgers is cut

Sky Sports decided to say nothing at all on Monday Night Football despite Jamie Carragher being absent through suspension after spitting at a 14-year-old girl.

The Liverpool legend was set to appear on the show along with Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, who has also been cut from the broadcast.

The show, which is covering Manchester City’s away Premier League clash to Stoke, was due to start at 7pm from its usual studio setting in London.

However, Sky told Mirror Football a decision was made to move filming to the Bet 365 stadium where it would go live at a new time of 7.30pm.

The former Liverpool captain, who is a regular on Monday Night Football, was due to appear alongside special guest Rodgers.

But instead it was just David Jones asking Gary Neville about the upcoming match – and nothing was said about Carragher.

This has all come after Carragher was captured on a mobile phone spitting from his car at a football fan and a 14-year-old girl following Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday.

The Anfield legend has since apologised for the incident and declared it “a moment of madness” and “not representative of the real me”.

The 40-year-old was summoned for talks with Sky Sports on Monday, and the company have described his actions as “unacceptable”.

On Monday afternoon, Carragher was then interviewed live on Sky News over the incident and forced to watch the footage of him spitting at the football fan and 14-year-old girl.

“You can’t obviously condone that behaviour no matter what; In any way shape or form, where you are, who you represent,” said Carragher. I’ve let Sky Sports down, my family and the family involved.”
