Gardner: Villa boss Lambert deserves credit for discovering Westwood

Gary Gardner says Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert deserves credit for signing Ashley Westwood.

Gardner says boss Lambert deserves a lot of praise for spotting Westwood plying his trade for Crewe in the lower leagues.

He told Villa's website: "Bringing Westy here is good management.

"To spot a player who's just come out League Two into League One, bring him to the Premier League, play him and see him perform to those kind of levels, that shows how good the gaffer is at finding talent."
