Ipswich Town are understood to be ready to unveil former Norwich City manager Paul Lambert as their new boss at 9am tomorrow morning according to the East Anglian Daily Times.
The 49-year-old Scot has been out of work since leaving former club Stoke City by mutual consent in May following The Potters’ relegation from the English Premier League.
Ipswich Town have been managerless since sacking former boss Paul Hurst yesterday following a poor start to the season which has left the Suffolk club rooted to the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship table.
It has now been revealed that The Tractor Boys are set to unveil Lambert, former boss of bitter rivals Norwich City, at a press conference on Saturday morning ahead of the club’s Sky Bet Championship fixture at Millwall. It is thought that a deal for Lambert to take charge at Portman Road has already been agreed but no official announcement will be made today with the funeral of club legend Kevin Beattie scheduled to take place.
Lambert won his only managerial accolades to date with former club Norwich City. The former Celtic and Borussia Dortmund midfielder guided The Canaries to back-to-back promotions from both the second and third tiers of English football.
In his last job at Stoke City, Lambert won just two of his 15 matches in charge and the Scot faces another huge challenge with new club Ipswich Town to avoid adding another unwanted relegation onto his CV.
