The story of Liverpool's new signing, Rickie Lambert, reads like a Hollywood movie script, but we have managed to condense his incredible tale into a succinct video profile for LFCTV GO subscribers.

Having been released by the Reds as a teenager, the Kirkby-born striker briefly worked in a beetroot factory and later traversed the lower leagues of English football in search of his dream.

By 2014, Lambert had become a household name, bagging more than a century of goals to help Southampton reach and thrive in the Barclays Premier League, and receiving England recognition.

Days before departing for the World Cup in Brazil, the 32-year-old sealed an emotional return to the club he has supported throughout his life, putting pen to paper at Melwood.
