Lampard emotional over Chelsea fans support

Frank Lampard was grateful to Chelsea fans for their support during Saturday's win over Bolton Wanderers.

"Super Frankie Lampard", they sang about the man who repaid their adulation with the 150th league goal of his career and his 125th in the league for Chelsea - taking him ahead of the legendary Jimmy Greaves.

Lampard said: "I just want to play and the way the fans were with me was amazing.

"It's lump-in-the-throat stuff when they sing your name like that.

"When I play and I can play, I know I can contribute but the main importance is Chelsea.

"The fans have stuck with us brilliantly.

"It's been a tough old season.

"These fans here, I think they've been through and seen a lot back in the old days.

"So they're always very keen to stay with their players and I can only thank them for that."
