Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says there's zero chance of him resigning.

Lambert has already received the backing of club owner Randy Lerner and insists he is ready for the battles ahead.

When asked if there was any chance he would quit, Lambert said: "No. I can only do, or try to do my best. There's no chance I'd walk away from it.

"You have to fight like anything to get up. You pick yourself up and there's no point in lying down and accepting it.

"I've never had a run like this as a manager or been hit from pillar to post like this. It's an experience you take on board and you use it.

"You can't have everything going your way in your managerial career every single time. You have to take the rough with the smooth and when the rough comes you take it."
