Lampard has hit back at Jose Mourinho for trying to blame Rudiger for the Son red card.

Asked for a response to Mourinho’s criticism of Rudiger, Lampard said: “With Toni, in this incident when he’s having to post after the game about something we know is a huge deal (racism), I think to question his integrity in that time is disappointing for sure.

“Pretty universally, certainly what I heard in the commentary and the post-match reflection was that the Son incident was a red card.

“It wasn’t brutal but it was instinctive that warrants a red card in the modern day.

“It was pretty clear that was the case. I wouldn’t question Toni’s integrity on that.

“So I do defend Toni firmly on it.”

Lampard also backed Rudiger on the racism incident.

“I spoke to him briefly after the game, but I haven’t had a one-on-one to speak to him about the incident as such,” said Lampard.

“I saw Toni’s social media post, I thought it was well put, from the heart and something that he feels very strongly about.

“I’ll speak to him today when I see him.

“I would like to think the players know I am with them on anything like this.

“I’ll have the same conversation with Toni that I had with Tammy after the incident earlier this year.

“And I will tell them and take the time to make sure he knows I support him, and that I support all my players in this situation.”
