Villa boss Lambert shocked by Reading axe for McDermott

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was shocked by Reading's dismissal of Brian McDermott.

Lambert's team entertain QPR, who have also changed managers this season.

And Lambert said: "You never like to see anybody lose their job. It's not a results business any more.

"Brian took them up and made them a lot of money like Nigel Adkins did at Southampton so it's not about results any more and that doesn't bode well.

"Brian has done a fantastic job there. He's made the club millions by taking them out of the Championship and seven months later he is gone.

"Do I worry? Football is like that. You never know what's round the corner. You have to focus on the job and let other people decide."
