Blackburn Rovers can announce that Paul Lambert will be leaving the club at the end of the current campaign.
The manager has decided to activate a release clause in his contract and will step down following Rovers’ final game of the season against Reading on Saturday May 7th.
“I would like to place on record my thanks to the Owners, and especially the players, staff and fans for the tremendous backing and support I have received since I arrived,” said Paul Lambert.
“It’s a brilliant club, with great people, and I wish it every success in the future. For now, I remain fully focused and determined to try to win the final two games of the season, starting this Saturday against Rotherham.”
Blackburn Rovers would like to thank Paul for all his efforts since joining the club in November and wish him well for the future.
The club will begin its search for a new manager with immediate effect.
