The Sun says Blues legend Lamps scored a 25-yard belter and got a standing ovation from the Stamford Bridge faithful as he skippered his team to a stunning 8-0 victory over Aston Villa last Sunday.
But the 34-year-old has been told his Blues career is over and that he can find a new team on January 1.
A Stamford Bridge insider confirmed: “Frank is absolutely distraught.
“He wants to keep playing for Chelsea but they’ve told him to find another club in the January transfer window. He can’t believe it. All he wants to do is play for Chelsea. This club means everything to him.”
The source added: “Frank worships the club — and especially the fans — and would happily have seen out his career at Stamford Bridge.
“After everything he has done for Chelsea, he cannot believe the way the club are throwing him out so callously.
“Anyone who saw his performance against Aston Villa will know he should be the first name on the team sheet.
“To think he went into that game knowing the club don’t want him and then to play the way he did tells you what an unbelievable professional Frank is.”
