Born in Scotland on the 12th of October 1985, young Charlie Adam was destined to become a professional footballer. His father Charles Adam played professionally for a number of clubs in Scotland. On his fifteenth birthday Adam joined Scottish powerhouse club Rangers where he stayed for a further 9 years. After being loaned to St. Mirren for the 2005/06 season Adam returned to the Ibrox the following year and became a regular starter for the Glaswegian club. He scored his first goal for Rangers in a UEFA cup win over Livorno. After gathering a haul of fourteen goals in that season Adam was named by fans as the 2006 Young Player of the Year.
In 2007 Adam got his first taste of Champions league football and scored a goal in each of Rangers fixtures against VBF Stuggart. During the 2008/09 Adam struggled for form and game time and this led to a loan move to Blackpool being arranged. Adam thrived on arrival and England and his form revival led to a permanent contract being signed with the seasiders. His passing and goal scoring ability were crucial in Blackpool's promotion to the premier league for the 2010/11 season. Adam took the premier league by storm scoring 12 goals for Blackpool, however it was not enough to avoid relegation. It was inevitable that bigger clubs would come looking for Adams signature after his stellar debut season in the EPL and in July 2011 Liverpool signed Adam for £7 million.
One of the first names on the team sheet, Adam scored his first goal against Bolton on the 27th August 2011 contributing to a 3-1 victory. The former Liverpool midfielder also represents Scotland in international fixtures, with his first goal being scored against Denmark in a friendly on the 10th of August 2011. Charlie Adam signed for Stoke City in August 2012 for £4 million.
