Paul Lambert has no intention of letting speculation over his future at Norwich deflect focus from plans to take the Norfolk club forwards next season.

Lambert reacted angrily to questions over links with the Aston Villa vacancy following Tuesday night's testimonial for long-serving defender Adam Drury against Celtic at Carrow Road.

The 42-year-old has transformed the fortunes of the Canaries since taking charge three seasons ago, guiding them up from npower League One and on to retaining Barclays Premier League status with a creditable 12th-placed finish. He said: "I don't think being a manager ever stops. I try to prepare Norwich for next season the best I can."
