Cape Town - Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has come out in full support of the club's acquisition of England striker Rickie Lambert.

Lambert will come full circle and return to the Merseyside club where he played for the youth teams, but was not offered a professional contract and dropped down to the lower leagues.

The Reds icon has praised the recruitment as a good option ahead of what will be a more demanding campaign for the club with European football on the horizon.

"I think it's a very good signing," Carragher told Liverpool's official website. "He's a local boy, a Liverpool fan, and it's probably been a dream for him.

"There'll be lots of games with Liverpool being involved in the Champions League, so he'll play his part and I'm sure he'll get some goals."

He added that he will be watching the upcoming World Cup with a lot of interest as the club's new signing as well as Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson, Glen Johnson and Luis Suarez will all be action.

"I'm eager for them all to do well - also Suarez, who is playing against England, so that'll be difficult," he continued.

"I think England will qualify from the group and then who knows who they'll get in the draw."
