West Bromwich Albion completed a deal for Rickie Lambert on Friday.
The experienced striker was a key player during Southampton’s rise to the Premier League and earned himself a dream move to boyhood club Liverpool last summer.
However, Lambert’s solitary year on Merseyside proved to be unsuccessful, the 33-year-old making only a handful of appearances and netting just three goals in the entire campaign.
He needs regular first-team football and the chance to reinvent himself without the added pressure, and Carragher believes West Brom are the ideal club for Lambert to get his career back on track.
"I felt he should have been given a few more opportunities but, when Raheem Sterling started playing as a striker at Old Trafford before Christmas, it was only a matter of time before Lambert moved on.
"I think he'll do very well for Tony Pulis and we'll see more of the Rickie Lambert we saw at Southampton."
While not his official league debut, Lambert soon appeared at ease in a West Brom kit as he notched two first-half goals during Friday’s comfortable 4-0 victory over Bristol Rovers.
Tony Pulis effect:
Considering his main attributes are his strength, aerial ability, presence leading the line and link-up play, Lambert is ideal for a team managed by survival expert Tony Pulis.
The former Stoke City boss succeeded in preserving the Baggies’ Premier League status last season, and his compact, no-nonsense style of football will bring the best out of his new striker signing.
