Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says the players were happy for skipper John Terry to celebrate winning the Europa League with them.

Lampard defended his pal against the criticism of him joining in celebrations at the Champions League and Europa League finals even though he did not play.

He told The Sun: "John must have been here 14-15 years, right from the youth team.

"The fact he couldn't be involved in two big finals was hard to take. He deserves to be involved when we win things, simple as that."
