Ex-Liverpool star McAteer takes swipe at buzz around Chelsea boss Lampard

Former Liverpool star Jason McAteer has taken a swipe at the buzz around Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Ahead of the weekend's showdown, McAteer has insisted that Lampard was not a success during his stint with Derby.

He stated that because of the funds that were at his disposal, he simply had to bring Derby back to the top-flight.

Speaking of Lampard on LFCTV, McAteer, 48, said: "He only had one season as Derby manager, would you say he was a success?

"Probably not because he had a pretty decent budget and the aim was to get them up, and he didn't do that."
