Villa's Lambert shocked by O'Neill's Sunderland departure
Paul Lambert admits he was shocked at Sunderland's decision to sack Martin O'Neill on Saturday.
"I was shocked like everybody else at what had happened. I was shocked," he said.
"Nobody is safe. I had the privilege of working under him for five years and it was fantastic.
"If you make that change....I'm not so sure...you'd think someone is going to appointed pretty quickly there at this stage of the season."
