Villa boss Lambert convinced of total Lerner support

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert remains confident of the support of club owner Randy Lerner.

Lambert insists he has always had a "good relationship" with Lerner and Villa chief executive Paul Faulkner.

He said: "I trust Randy. That's the kind of relationship I have with him.

"I spoke with him after the game the other night and we have a good conversation every time. I have a good relationship with him and Paul. Randy and Paul have been great with me.

"But I also know the realism of football. That's one thing I will never shy away from. I also know what can happen and what doesn't happen in football. You've got to get results.

"People say it's nice to hear your job is safe. I don't think anything is set in stone in football. I know everything can turn and change.

"But, as I've said, I get on really well with Randy and Paul. As long as people are clear with me and have face-to-face value, I don't have a problem - never."
