30 January 2015 :Â Frank Lampard should be treated like a Chelsea great when he returns to Stamford Bridge with Manchester City, believes his uncle Harry Redknapp.
The 36-year-old returns to his old club for the top-of-the-table clash for the first time since leaving in the summer.
Lampard is Chelsea’s record goalscorer with 211 goals over 13 years at the club, winning three league titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League.
“Surely he should get a good reception shouldn’t he?” said QPR boss Redknapp.
“He has to be one of the all-time great Chelsea players. They’ve had some fantastic players over the years and he’s one of the all-time greats,” added Redknapp.
Redknapp, as well as being Lampard’s uncle, gave him his first opportunity as a teenager when they were both at West Ham.
The game pits league leaders Chelsea against their nearest rivals in the title race.
But despite a five-point gap between the two, City boss Manuel Pellegrini says the result will not decide who wins the Premier League in May.
