Villa's Bannan would love to see Lambert take reins

Barry Bannan has welcomed the idea of Paul Lambert becoming the new manager at Aston Villa.

The Scotsman is on the verge of being installed as Villa's replacement for Alex McLeish after he departed his role at Norwich City and Scotland international Bannan would love to see him appointed.

"If it is him, then that will be good," Bannan told Sky Sports News.

"He has done very well with Norwich and the clubs he was at before then. He has a good record up until now so hopefully, if it is Lambert, he can be as successful with us as he has with his previous teams."
