The English grammar and usage by Martins Fontes (issued by Chambers/Martins Fontes Press) says:
Sorry is an adjective you say I´m sorry, or more briefly, sorry.
Sorry can be followed by the structures:
-a "that" clause without that
Sorry I forgot to tell you.
I am sorry, I am late.
- a "to" infinitive
I am very sorry to disappoint you.
Sorry not to replied earlier.
- an "if " clause
Sorry, if I sounded rude.
- the prepositions "for" or "about" + noun phrase or an -ing form.
I am sorry for being so disorganized.
I am awfully sorry about the terrible mess.
Sorry about getting so angry the other day.
You can use sorry to express regret about things you are not responsible for:
I was so sorry to hear about your grandmother death.
Sorry you didn´t get the job.
I´m sorry to tell y that your application has been unsuccessful.
I hope this helps, cause helped me a lot. The doubt was mine too.
