Malky Mackay appears to be out of the running for the Norwich job after Canaries chief executive David McNally revealed the club are looking for a manager with "top-league" experience.

The Canaries are on the look-out for a new manager after Paul Lambert left for Aston Villa last week. Cardiff boss Mackay has been linked with the vacancy, but he appears to have been ruled out of the running after McNally said Lambert's replacement must have "top-league experience" in management - something the Scot lacks.

Despite finishing 12th in the Barclays Premier League last season, Norwich are still regarded as one of the minnows in English football's top flight. McNally insists the position is an attractive one, however, and has revealed that the club will scour Europe in the hope of finding a new manager who can continue Lambert's good work at Carrow Road.
