The England international striker has left Liverpool for Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion.
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.
Aldridge has taken to Twitter to bid farewell to Lambert, who will now be looking to establish himself in the West Brom starting line-up.

Following Lambert’s exit, Liverpool fans also took to Twitter to have their say. Most of the supporters wished the former Bristol Rovers and Macclesfield Town striker well at The Hawthorns.

I am sad to see Rickie Lambert go tbh. He always worked hard! In the end he just didn't fit our style of play #LFC— Zayd Rehman (@zaatarwazayd) August 1, 2015
Think Lambert will get between 8-12 goals next season. Good player, just never got a chance like Borini. Both good players. #LFC— Connor Merritt (@ConnorMerritt95) August 1, 2015
