Lambert: We need to strengthen

4 December 2015

Paul Lambert has confirmed that he's eager to strengthen the squad when the January transfer window opens.

With the announcement of the transfer embargo being lifted on Thursday, the Rovers manager has already identified areas of weakness in the squad and will do his best to address that at the turn of the year.

"When January comes, does the squad need strengthening? 100% it does," said Lambert.

"It needs strengthening and it needs guys to come in and help the ones that are here, and being out of the embargo certainly gives you that scope to go and do it.

"You can see what we lack, you can see where we are weak and you can also see where we are strong. I've seen that in the two weeks, we know where we are lacking.

"It will be difficult but the good feeling is that the constraints are now away from us and we can move pretty freely without going mad.

"Another big message is that the club becomes a lot more attractive than having an embargo and a cloud sitting over you every day.

"Agents will probably phone non-stop now, so from that point of view it is brilliant news, but with a cool head and a steady hand lets see what happens.

"The nice thing about it is you can work freely and without constraints, that is the nice thing about it.

"I'm pretty sure we'll start to have meetings now and start to put a plan in place over the next few weeks."
