Lambert committed to Canaries

Next Story

Norwich manager Paul Lambert reiterated his commitment to the club after his all-conquering side clinched the Coca-Cola League One title with a 2-0 win over Gillingham.

Recent speculation has linked Lambert with the Celtic job but he insists he is going nowhere after watching goals from Darel Russell and Michael Nelson earn the Canaries three points.

"I love it here," he stressed. "So unless Delia (Smith) sacks me I will be here next season. You can't stop speculation but I won't be losing any sleep over it. Celtic is a great football club, with a great fan base and I had a wonderful time there as a player but Norwich is a terrific club with terrific supporters as well."

He added: "It's good to see the fans enjoying the moment and it's important they do that because these sort of things don't come around too often.

"I don't know how many times Norwich have won something in their history but I shouldn't imagine it has happened too often. So we should all cherish the moment because you never know how football can turn.

"I never dreamt it would go as well as this when I first took over. I thought we would be in the mix but I never thought this would happen.

"When you consider how far we were behind Leeds and Charlton at one stage, it's a magnificent achievement and I can't praise the players highly enough. They have been terrific for me."
