Manager Bio

Paul Lambert has managed three clubs in the Premier League.

Following a playing career that earned him a UEFA Champions League winners medal with Borussia Dortmund in 1997 and four top-flight titles with Celtic, Lambert started his coaching career in Scotland.

The Scot started out as manager of Livingston in 2005 and in the summer of 2006 he was announced as the man in charge of Wycombe Wanderers.

He led the club to the League Cup semi-finals in his first season and reached the League Two play-offs the following campaign before resigning in May 2008.

In October, Lambert took over at Colchester United in League One, but he went to Norwich City in August 2009 shortly after defeating the Canaries 7-1 with his former club.

Lambert led Norwich to the League One title in 2009/10 and recorded back-to-back promotions to earn the Norfolk side a place in the Premier League.

Premier League safety was secured in the 2011/12 campaign, however Aston Villa moved for the former Scotland midfielder in June 2012.

A second League Cup semi-final preceded two 15th-place finishes, but Lambert departed Villa in February 2015.

Two briefs spells at Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship followed over the next two seasons, before Stoke announced him as Mark Hughes's replacement on 15 January 2018.

Lambert won only two matches in charge at Stoke and left the club by mutual consent following the Potters' relegation in 2017/18.
