Paul Lambert is one angry Scots man!
He wasn't exactly a shrinking violet as a player, and during a management career where things have often been more bad than good, we usually don't have to wait long until the Ipswich Town manager gives us something to write about.
Today is one of those days!
Things aren't going well for his, bottom of the Championship, Tractor Boys, as they find themselves one down to arch-rivals, and former employers, Norwich City in a fiery Old Farm derby at Carrow Road. Onel Hernandez giving the table-topping Canaries a second-minute lead.
But as the clock ticked toward the half-time whistle, under pressure Lambert got embroiled in an argument with the Norwich management staff after a tasty challenge by City right back Max Aarons on Ipswich's Irish midfielder Alan Judge under the nose of both benches.

First came his poking finger, then came the "Do you want some's?", then came the cold hard hand of the law.
Lambert was sent to the stands for his part in the fracas by referee Peter Bankes.
Should the home side hold on to their advantage, they'll leapfrog Leeds at the head of the division, whereas Lambert and Ipswich will find themselves increasingly cut adrift at the foot of the table. After a run of seven losses in the last eight games, they find themselves a full nine points from safety with relegation to League One staring them square in the face.
