Lambert blasts O'Neill critics

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has blasted critics who have branded Martin O'Neill a dinosaur and backed his former manager to prove them wrong.

It's shocking. It's woeful. That's people who probably haven't been a manager calling him that.

I worked for him for five years. He was a breath of fresh air at Celtic. He was absolutely brilliant. He took the club by the scruff of the neck, it was dead, on its knees and he got us to a European final and won us titles.

– Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert.
