Charlie Adam would be undaunted by the pressure of playing for Liverpool, says his father.

The Blackpool skipper has enhanced his reputation at Bloomfield Road since joining from Rangers in 2009, and his father has hit back at reports suggesting he was a flop in Glasgow - claiming his son would be well suited to a move to a high-profile club again.

"People look at Charles' time at Rangers and say he didn't make it there, but the fact is he played almost 100 games for them," Charlie Adam Snr told the Scottish Sun.

"He played in the Champions League and UEFA Cup.

"He was up against some of the best teams and players in the world and he held his own. And having been at one of the biggest clubs in Europe, a team like Liverpool would know he could handle the pressure of playing for them.

"I do think Blackpool have to remember they paid just £500,000 for Charles and are set to make a lot of money.

"But I also understand why they are looking for the best possible deal."




 

Adam had a transfer request rejected by his employers yesterday amidst growing speculation that he could on the verge of joining Liverpool.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway described on Tuesday how his squad serenaded Adam with Liverpool anthem You'll Never Walk Alone as he appears to head closer towards the exit.

However, the Seasiders continue to play hardball with Liverpool and grow increasingly frustrated at their conduct regarding a potential deal.

The Reds reportedly had an offer of £4 million rebuffed for Adam on Friday and now, according to The Telegraph, it will take a whopping £16 million for Liverpool to sign the Scotland international.

Liverpool, however, are thought to be reluctant to offer any more than £5 million for the midfielder, who has his heart set on a move to Anfield.
