CHARLIE ADAM has revealed he has been left feeling like a ‘school kid’ again after being given the chance to face old club Blackpool in the FA Cup.

Adam’s Reading have been drawn to face the Seasiders at home in the third round of the competition in early January.

It will be the first time the ex-Rangers and Scotland midfielder has taken on his former team since leaving them for Liverpool in a big-money move in 2011.

He said: “It’s the perfect tie for me, I’m delighted. 

"It’s a great opportunity because I’ve never been able to play against Blackpool so I’m buzzing.

“I’m like a school kid, it’s great for everybody at the club. It’s what the FA Cup does to you, especially when you've got such good memories.”

The 33-year-old told BBC 5Live: “It’s a great club and they've got themselves in a good position now. It’s a great tie.”
