The ex-England star became only the seventh player in history to hit the magical 150 Premier League goal milestone when he broke his Stoke duck against Swansea at the weekend.
He said: "I did fear I'd never get there. You do worry and think it isn't meant to be but thankfully I got there and it's another good achievement for me.
"It's nice to do it and a good way to score my first goal for the club.
"Now it's a question of me doing well, training hard and then taking my chance when it comes.
"Hopefully the second half of the season can be a lot better for me."
