PAUL LAMBERT has been let go from his position as Stoke City manager after the club was relegated from the Premier League.
The former Celtic player was brought in with fifteen games to go in a bid to save Stoke from the drop but the damage had seemingly already been done.
Stoke brought Lambert in on a short term deal that expired this summer and have chosen not to renew any deal and both parties have gone their separate ways.
In a statement from Stoke, they thanked Paul for his efforts.
“Whilst he was unable to guide us to safety, it certainly wasn’t due to a lack of effort, professionalism and dedication,” a Stoke statement said.
“The club would like to thank Paul for his work over the past four months and wish him well for the future,” the club statement said.
“Paul would like to thank the board, players and staff for the opportunity and their support. He would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support. Whilst looking forward to his next challenge, he would like to wish the club every success next season.”
