Rickie Lambert announces retirement

Former Southampton and Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert has announced his retirement from playing professional football, according to the Mail Online.

The thirty-five most recently played for Cardiff City, racking up nineteen appearances for them last season and scoring four goals though he has been without a club since and decided to call time on a career that has spanned almost twenty years.

Having spent the majority of his career in the lower leagues, Lambert achieved promotion to the Premier League with Southampton in 2012 when he was also named the Championship’s Player of the Year.

He continued to impress in the top flight for the Saints with his form earning him full international recognition and a move to the team he supported as a child, Liverpool.

He won a total of eleven caps for England, scoring three goals with one of those outings coming as a substitute in the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.
