Paul Lambert set to become next manager of Blackburn Rovers
Blackburn Rovers set to appoint former Villa manager Paul Lambert in place of Gary Bowyer
November 11th, 2015
Never mind the Premier League, it’s the Championship which has the biggest managerial merry-go-round, with Gary Bowyer the latest victim after Blackburn Rovers decided to dispense with his services.
It appears as though the Lancashire club have a ready-made replacement, with Paul Lambert waiting in the wings to return to football management after previously being in charge of Norwich City and Aston Villa.
The Scot will be associated with a dull brand of football with the Villans, although his previous record with the Canaries was impressive, guiding them from League One to the Premier League in a short space of time.
The bookies were quick to install Lambert as red-hot favourite, with Blackburn one of several clubs without a permanent manager following the departure of Chris Ramsey and Kit Symons at QPR and Fulham respectively.
Indeed, eight managers have already bitten the dust in the Championship since the season started, with the current top ten sticking with their bosses, although expectation levels continue to grow as the Premier League money increases next season.
