Spit-shame soccer star Jamie Carragher will face no further action after being spoken to by police over spitting in the face of a 14-year-old girl.

The former Liverpool and England defender was spoken to by officers on Wednesday over the incident which has seen him dropped from his £1 million role as a Sky Sports pundit.

Carragher was filmed by another motorist, Andy Hughes, light-heartedly goading the Anfield legend after Liverpool's loss to bitter rivals Manchester United last Saturday.

The 40-year-old then leaned out of the driver's window of his Range Rover before spitting at the other car - hitting the other driver's 14-year-old daughter in the face.

Sky Sports has suspended Carragher from his job as TV pundit until the end of the season, a role reportedly worth £1 million.

On Wednesday a spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said a crime of assault would be recorded but it had been decided it was not in the public interest to pursue a prosecution.

The force said: "We have spoken to all parties involved and it was agreed that a prosecution would not be sought in relation to this incident.

"As per NCRS (National Crime Recording Standard) policy a crime was recorded for section 39 assault.

"However, without a desire to seek a prosecution by those involved, it was determined it would not be in the interest of the public to take this matter further.

“The crime has now been closed."

Mr Hughes, who filmed the footage while driving, is understood to have agreed to go on a driving improvement course.

A contrite Carragher has repeatedly apologised for his "moment of madness" both to Mr Hughes, his daughter, and football fans in general.
