Paul Lambert has allayed fears that he is interested in taking over at his former club Celtic.

The Canaries boss was linked with the job after the Glasgow giants sacked Tony Mowbray on Thursday. Neil Lennon has taken over, but only until the end of the season.

However, Lambert says he's happy at Carrow Road and that the speculation is not something that is on his mind.

'Hypothetical questions don't really bother me one bit,' he said.

'Celtic was brilliant when I was there, it was a terrific place to play football. There's the great pressure of it, and we won some really nice things there and we just fell short in the Uefa Cup.

'I had great times up there, I really did. I loved it, a brilliant football club, and the pressure of it is huge.
