The Richest states the sports star is worth a whopping $21 million or around £15m.

The British footballer played as a defender for Liverpool and was the vice captain of the club.

He had a contact with the club paying £90,000 a week, totalling £4.7m a year.

Originally from Merseyside, he is married to Nicola Hart and the couple have two children.

He has previously been awarded accolades for charity work including the Freedom of the Borough of Sefton.

He is also a patron to the Alder Hey Charity.

The star made an apology on Sky, making an emotional plea for forgiveness.

He said: “It was a moment of madness. It’s difficult to explain, it was almost an out-of-body thing but you can’t ever behave like that, it’s unacceptable. My biggest regret is for the 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of it.

“That devastates me more than anything. I’ve got a daughter exactly the same age and I can’t say how I’d react if someone did that to her.”

Carragher’s behaviour has angered many fans, however, Countdown’s Rachel Riley called for ‘decency’.

She tweeted to her 545,000 Twitter followers: “Whatever someone’s done I hate angry mob bullying,” Rachel said last night.

The blonde beauty continued: “Wish others would show decency and fairness themselves before grabbing the pitchfork, it’s damaging in so many ways and needs to stop.”

Her tweet has since been reposted almost 200 times and liked by nearly 3,000 after the controversy erupted earlier this week.
