Lambo stressed he is not jealous of Harry Redknapp's multi-million spree in West London.
The Villa boss said: "I don't get embroiled in what someone else can do.
"If Harry wants to do that and thinks it's right for QPR he's got to do what he thinks is best.
"We tried to do a few deals for a defender but the salaries were way too high.
"There has got to be some realism at the minute and the fans have it. I think they are with us because they can see what's going on."
