Lambert In At Stoke City

Written by on January 15, 2018

Stoke City have appointed former Aston Villa and Norwich boss Paul Lambert as manager.

The 48-year-old Scot has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract after Mark Hughes was dismissed this month.

Stoke are 18th in the Premier League table, a point away from safety, and were knocked out of the FA Cup by League Two side Coventry City.

Lambert played in Scotland with St Mirren and Celtic.

His first match in charge will be Saturday’s home game against fellow strugglers Huddersfield.

Lambert has been out of work since leaving Wolves at the end of last season.

He also had spells in charge of Colchester, Wycombe Wanderers and Blackburn.

As a player, he won the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund in 1997 and claimed four Scottish titles with Celtic, as well as earning 40 Scotland caps.
