Lambert: Clough became my hero

Lambert on hero Clough

Eurosport

In addition to Scotland and Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish, Lambert was a big fan of the late Seventies era at Nottingham Forest, saying that the two European Cups were an "incredible achievement", although admitting his love of Clough came later in life.

When asked about the greatest player he had ever worked with, the former Scotland midfielder did not need much time for thought.

"The best I ever played with was Andy Moeller," he responded, referring to his former Borussia Dortmund team-mate and Germany playmaker.

"He was world class - lightning quick and, unlike some payers whose brain didn’t coincide with their feet, he had both."
