Former Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has spoken about his frustrations at Blackburn Rovers.

The 46-year-old took over at Ewood Park in November but has made limited progress, with Tuesday's 2-1 loss at Sheffield Wednesday leaving Rovers 16th in the Championship table.

'I can't keep being a spokesman for the football club,' the Scot said. 'I went through the same at Aston Villa and I'll never go through that again.'

He added: 'We need to wait and see what is going to happen. Once I've had talks with the owners, there's not much more I can say. It's the same as I've been saying for the last few months.'

The former Celtic star, who led Norwich from League One to the Premier League in successive seasons, initially steered Rovers to a season-high position of 11th in the table in December.

But they have won just one of their last five league matches, leaving Lambert's record at 10 wins in 27 games.

'Nobody can take anything away from the owners for putting the money in that they did in the past. I am not here for the past and the club has to move forward,' Lambert told BBC Radio Lancashire, with the club's debts revealed to have risen past £100 million last month.
