Lambert: Don't Expect Me to Shake Your Hand
Monday, 7th Oct 2019 18:18

Paul Lambert says he has no plans to shake hands with Gillingham manager Steve Evans either before or after Tuesday’s Leasing.com Trophy tie at Portman Road in the wake of the visitors’ boss’s comments at the recent League One match between the teams at the Priestfield Stadium, which the Blues won 1-0.

Evans, who had spent virtually the entire 90 minutes sniping at the fourth official and Town’s staff, claimed Lambert had “said something rather concerning during the game”, which the Blues manager later described as “complete rubbish and lies”.

Asked how he felt about Tuesday’s reunion after Saturday's game at Fleetwood, Lambert said: “I’ll give it the respect and credence it deserves. That’s it, I’ve nothing to say about him.”

He confirmed he would blank fellow Glaswegian Evans: “If that’s the way he wants to work, then no problem, but don’t expect me to shake your hand before it and don’t expect me to shake your hand after it. Nobody’s ever done that to me.”

Maybe the bench could all do that wave thing at Evans instead? Like the AB's doing the haka but camper.

The correct name for him is 'fat crook Steve Evans'.

Offer him 10 Greggs pasties a couple of sausage rolls and half a dozen doughnuts to get the windbag through the game, just as a gesture of friendship

Even Barton was graceful in defeat, Evans has form on being a bad loser! I back Lamberts stance on this!

I know Lambert see's this as a pointless trophy but i hope we do a job on them and give Evans more reasons to be bitter! Not a particularly nice person!

Has there been any action/comments made in relation to what was allegedly said by PL or was this just rubbish made up?

Yep, blank the mouthy annoying fool. He's been getting away with his verbal nonsense for years. PL won't lower himself to his level. COYB

Don’t lower yourself to his level PL. If he doesn’t wish to shake a offered hand move on to real the real people who belong in football
