Confirmed: Liverpool FC midfielder to miss rest of the season

Liverpool’s Charlie Adam is definitely ruled out of the rest of the season and will shortly undergo an operation after suffering lateral knee ligament damage, The Guardian reports this evening.

The Scottish international midfielder picked up the injury during Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat to Queen’s Park Rangers last week, with many expecting the Reds number 26 to miss the rest of the campaign.

Adam’s absence will give the likes of Jay Spearing a chance in the first team, with 8 league games of the season left to go and an FA Cup semi-final against Everton at Wembley on April 14th.

Adam’s omission from the squad for the weekend’s Premier League game at home to Wigan created an extra space on the bench for 17-year-old starlet Raheem Sterling, who impressed with a six minute cameo before full-time.

Adam joined the Reds last summer from Blackpool and has made 35 appearances this season, scoring twice.
