BOSS SLAMS EVANS COMMENTS

21 September 2019

“What’s been said is a disgrace and what I and my assistant Stuart Taylor had to put up with on the touchline was a disgrace as well”

Town boss Paul Lambert has hit back at comments from Steve Evans after Blues’ win at Priestfield.

The Gillingham boss accused Paul of saying something during the game ‘that would concern somebody in the street, let alone a football manager trying to win a game’.

Evans also added that Paul said ‘you’re rubbish son in the direction of Jack Tucker when he kicks a ball out of the park’.

An angry Town boss told the Club website: “I have seen Steve Evans’ comments and they are disgraceful and a load of lies.

“The abuse that was coming from their bench was vile.

“I have worked in the Premier League and I’m competitive and gone up against some great managers but I have always shown total respect throughout my career.

“I went to shake hands with Steve Evans at the end of the game and his assistant but they waved me away. That’s up to them but it shows a lack of respect and it’s not how I play the game.

“As for saying I spoke to one of the players the way he has suggested, complete rubbish and lies. I would never talk to a player like that. I went around saying ‘well played’ to their players after the game.

“What’s been said by Steve Evans is a disgrace and what I and my assistant Stuart Taylor had to put up with on the touchline was a disgrace as well.”
