Gary Neville gives verdict on Rickie Lambert’s West Brom move

Rickie Lambert

Rickie Lambert has moved from Liverpool to Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has written on that Rickie Lambert will prove to be a good signing for West Bromwich Albion.

The England international striker has left Liverpool for Premier League rivals West Brom.

The 33-year-old moved to the Reds from Southampton in the summer of 2014, but he struggled for regular playing time under manager Brendan Rodgers during the 2014-15 campaign.

Lambert did not fit in the Liverpool manager’s style and could make just 25 Premier League appearances last season, scoring two goals and creating 11 chances in the process.

Former United defender Neville believes that the former Stockport County striker will be a success at The Hawthorns.

“He's a great signing for West Brom,” the former England international wrote on “Will score goals and lead by example.”

Lambert has already played for West Brom, featuring in a pre-season friendly game against his former Bristol Rovers on Friday evening.

The Englishman found the target in the 23rd minute and in the 46th minute to guide the Baggies to a comprehensive 4-0 win.
