Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp is struggling to understand why Chelsea intend to cut loose Frank Lampard.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "It's not because he's my cousin, more that he makes such a difference to Chelsea . . . what are they doing letting Frank Lampard go? Like Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs are symbols of Manchester United's success, Frank is such a top pro in that dressing room."
