CHARLIE Adam has admitted he will be haunted forever by Blackpool’s relegation from the Premier League.

It is five weeks since the Scot signed for Liverpool in a £7m deal, but it wasn’t until yesterday that he was officially unveiled to the media at a press conference at the Reds’ Melwood training ground.

In a separate interview he gave specifically for The Gazette he made it clear how much the Seasiders mean to him.

As he prepares for Liverpool’s Premier League opener against Sunderland on Saturday week, Adam said: “I am buzzing being at Liverpool. Every day I am walking into training with a smile on my face knowing that not many people get the opportunity to come to this club. It is a real honour and privilege.

“But it will always remain with me that I didn’t help keep Blackpool up. All of us players from last season feel the same.

“The lads I still speak to are still disappointed they are not in the Premier league. They deserve to be.

“It will haunt me for the rest of my career that we never stayed up, because as a group that is what we will get remembered for.
