Lambert coy on Villa speculation
Norwich boss Paul Lambert insists he will not discuss reports linking him with Aston Villa as it would be "unfair".
Lambert's opposite number at Villa Alex McLeish has come under increased pressure in recent weeks as a disastrous run of results has seen the Midlands side tumble towards the drop zone. In contrast, Lambert has been praised throughout the campaign for the performances of his Norwich side, who could guarantee survival this weekend. There has been speculation the Villa hierarchy could move to replace McLeish with Lambert in the summer but the Norwich boss won't be drawn on the rumours. "Speculation about players is something you can never do anything about. That happens," he said in a press conference ahead of this weekend's meeting with Liverpool. "It happens with managers as well and you can't stop that. "If my players get linked with other teams there is not a thing I can do about that. It is the same situation about myself. "It is extremely unfair with me being linked with Aston Villa when they have got a really good manager up there who is doing everything he can to stay in the league. "It is an unfair comment for me to say anything on that."
