Former Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has said that he believes a move to Scotland is unlikely, according to BBC Sport.

Lambert has been without a job since departing Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of May, with the former Canaries chief being replaced by Nuno Espirito Santo at Molineux.

The former Scotland captain has a wealth of experience managing Football League sides, with Lambert taking the hot-seat at Norwich City, Wycombe Wanderers, Aston Villa, Colchester United and Blackburn Rovers and has recently been linked to the vacant job at Sunderland United.

“There’s one or two things that I’m mulling over in my head at the minute,” the 47-year-old told BBC Scotland.

“I’m never adverse to anything but I think I would rather stay in England or I’d go abroad.

“I’m fortunate I don’t really need to jump into anything that I don’t think is worthwhile or I think ‘no, it’s not for me.

“So, I’ll take my time and I’ll see what I can do. It’s been brilliant [in England]. I’ve loved my time down there. I’ve had opportunities to go abroad, which I’ve turned down. I think my time’s probably away from Scotland.

“Wolves is a brilliant club, terrific fan-base. There’s some really good players there at Wolves and I’m talking about the lads that Walter Zenga brought in as well.

“Our job was to try to help them along the way but they made the decision, everybody became comfortable with it. There was no animosity whatsoever – there’s some good people there and we just decided to go our separate ways.”
