Lampard’s strike took him past Bobby Tambling to become the Blues’ all time top scorer in the top division and he was delighted to put his name in the club’s history books.
“It means I’m old,” Lampard joked of the record. “No, it means a lot. I’ve been fortunate to play for a great club and the managers had team-mates around me.
“I’m very proud of that goals record, to beat a great man such as Bobby who is an absolute legend and a lovely bloke, it means everything.
“Coming across London is not always easy but they (the fans) have supported me from the first minute. I appreciate it. I try to play well for them.”
