32-year-old wants to stay at Anfield despite offer of increased first-team football…
After multiple varying reports during the past few hours, James Smith of the Liverpool Echo and Ben Smith of the BBC are certain that Rickie Lambert has decided to stay with us instead of signing for Aston Villa, with the Midlands club having offered £5m for his services earlier this evening.
Rickie Lambert will definitely be staying at #LFC tonight. No move to Villa.
