Lambert Not Interested in Celtic Job
Thursday, 25th Feb 2021 17:36

Town boss Paul Lambert says he’s not interested in the vacant manager’s job at his former club Celtic.

Lambert, 51, says he doesn’t want to do anything which might risk damaging his relationship with Parkhead supporters having played at his hometown club between 1997 and 2005.

"I played for eight years, but I left the Glasgow scene a long time ago,” Lambert told Sky Sports News.

“That's not my life anymore. I don't want to tarnish the good feelings I have with the Celtic fans.

“We won a hell of a lot, stopping Rangers winning ten [league titles] in a row in 1998. That was an incredible achievement.”

Manager Neil Lennon resigned yesterday with the Bhoys 18 points behind Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

“You have to realise, if you finish second, you fail. The new chief executive needs to look at the bigger picture,” Lambert added.

“You have to get trophies back and get the pendulum swinging back your way.

"Nine years of dominance - they have to get that back. If he thinks he will get one or two years of grace, he won't get it. And rightly so, he shouldn't get it.”

Lambert is currently ranked as a 33-1 outside for the job with caretaker-manager John Kennedy the 2-1 favourite for the role with ex-Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe second-favourite at 3-1.

Steven Gerrard and all the fans of Glasgow Rangers will be very disappointed by this.

Lambert on new Celtic Manager: "If he thinks he will get one or two years of grace, he won't get it. And rightly so, he shouldn't get it.”

Conveniently different to Ipswich requirements.

I bet they’re gutted.

So even Lambert thinks Lambert isn’t good enough

Not interested or not offered

Is that because he wants to become a professional whisky hobo instead? That position is probably beyond him as well to be fair.

TractorCam added 17:52 - Feb 25
Bold to presume they'd even consider him.

MonkeyAlan added 17:53 - Feb 25
I shouldn't think they would offer it to you Lambert. You are an utter failure here. They don't want that. Nor do we, so hurry up and do one. Evans you muppet.

They’re not interested in him, so he thought he’d get in first.

It never ceases to amaze we with his record post the Scum, I was truly surprised we were at all interested in him, but then Marcus hasn't made one good managerial appointment that has worked out yet!
PS Although I think MM had he been given funds would have got us up.

He's already been told he hasn't a cat in hell's chance with his record!

Oh for goodness sake people. Somebody asked him. So he a answered. And now he’s attacked for a totally inconsequential conversation. Gie the mon a brek, would ye ?

First time he's said anything that's made any sense.

More likely Celtic not interested in Lambert .... if I was Celtic I dont think I'd try and poach a manager who had the biggest squad and highest paid squad in the league and delivered an 11th place finish

Pencilpete, it isnt finished yet

I am hoping Norwich will want him back for a second spell as manager as he did so well the first time

stiggytrunk1955 added 18:46 - Feb 25

Paramedic added 18:47 - Feb 25
I’m sure the feelings mutual.

SickParrot added 18:57 - Feb 25
I can't believe that Celtic would be daft enough to consider him for the job but given his massive ego I'm surprised that he actually realises that he wouldn't last long at a really big club like that. After all, he's been at really big clubs before you know!
