Blackburn Rovers

Outgoing Blackburn boss believes the club needs help, coy over Celtic links



Paul Lambert has revealed that Blackburn Rovers need help going forward, report BBC Sport


The Scotsman announced yesterday he would be leaving Ewood Park at the end of the season, despite only taking over at the club earlier this season.

His reign has been marred by reports he is disillusioned under the club’s owners, with the sale of star striker Jordan Rhodes to Middlesbrough highlighted as a key issue.

While the former Aston Villa and Norwich City coach has praised the club as a whole, he has revealed to BBC Radio Lancashire that he believes Rovers ‘need help.’

‘Do I fear for the club? No, I certainly hope not,’ said Lambert.

“It’s a great club and I don’t think anybody should be under any illusion how good it is, it just needs help.”

‘There is no bad feeling, there is no animosity or infighting, all those sort of things that make you leave a club.’

‘I’ve got nothing but good things to say about Blackburn Rovers.’

Upon the announcement he would be leaving the Lancashire outfit after their final home game with the already relegated MK Dons, the 46-year old has been strongly touted for the soon-to-be vacant post with former club Celtic.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund star was a popular player at Parkhead and has remained coy over his future.

‘You’ll probably get all that, the only connection I’ve got with Celtic is I played eight great years.’

‘It’s a fantastic club, a great club and you like to think you’ve done your bit in that time.’

‘But as of this minute I’m back to square one where I was when I left Aston Villa.’

Is Lambert right? Could he have led Blackburn forward, if given the right backing?
