Lambert criticises Canaries after red card

12th February 2019, 17:58 by Aidan Perkins

Ipswich manager Paul Lambert has accused Norwich of a "lack of class" and insists he does not regret being sent off in Sunday's derby.

Lambert was given a red card on the stroke of half-time after he reacted angrily and had to be restrained by a police officer as a brawl broke out between the two teams, triggering an angry exchange with some of Norwich's backroom staff.

The 49-year-old's relationship with the club he left in 2012 has long been strained and he told Ipswich's official website: "It was a lack of class on their behalf; I've never been involved in anything like that at all.

"Some of the things that were said were totally out of order and I'll fight the corner of this football club.

"There were things that shouldn't have happened, not through our doing.

"We played a really good game without getting the reward and that's been the story of our time here. Regarding what I saw and what I've heard, I won't let this club be bullied by anyone."

Relegation-threatened Ipswich host Derby in the Championship on Wednesday.
