Lambert leaves Ipswich job

Paul Lambert has left his job as Ipswich Town manager after “differences of opinion” with owner and chairman Marcus Evans.

The club announced they had parted company by mutual consent on Sunday despite a 2-1 victory over Doncaster in League One in what was to be Lambert’s final game in charge.

Assistant manager Stuart Taylor has also left Portman Road and owner Evans said: “It has become clear after holding discussions over the last few days that there are significant differences of opinion as to the order of immediate priorities and we agreed it was best for us to part company.

“I would like to put on record my sincere thanks to Paul and Stuart for their services to Ipswich Town over the last two and half years. I have enjoyed a healthy working relationship with Paul in our time together and he has brought a lot of positive aspects to the club.”
