WOLVES boss Paul Lambert comes up against Rovers for the first time since his departure in May and admits: “it wasn’t right what was happening there”.
Lambert took charge of Wolves in November, six months after he left the Ewood Park helm, and his former side arrive at Molineux in the Championship relegation zone with just three games to go.
The Scot activated a clause within the two-and-a-half year contract he signed in November 2015 with Rovers to leave his job at the end of last season, admitting he could foresee the problems that would be facing the club this season.
Lambert says he wants to see Rovers remain in the Championship next season, but feels sorry for the supporters with the lack of communication from the club’s Indian owners.
“It’s a really good club and there are some really good people there that have been there for years,” Lambert told the Express & Star.
“I was involved in it and could probably see the problems that were starting. That’s why I decided to leave because I thought it wasn’t right, what was happening there.
“We have to win on Saturday. I’d love them to stay up, but I want us to beat them.
“Owen (Coyle) came in and tried to do his best, Tony (Mowbray) has gone in and it’s been up and down.
“It’s difficult for them. I can understand the supporters, it’s not nice for them because nobody knows what’s happening with the club, nobody speaks to tell people what’s going on.
“It’s a very difficult situation for them. I feel sorry for the supporters, they’re a loyal bunch, I’m not sure they deserve not being told what’s happening.”
