Exclusive picture gallery: Lambert oversees training

Paul Lambert cut an intense figure in training as he ran the rule over his players ahead of the 2013-14 season.

It may have been the initial stages of pre-season but Lambert was strong in his principles while observing the action at Bodymoor Heath.

Check out the exclusive pictures of Lambert.

He was encouraging and enthusiastic as he walked from group to group, handing out advice on what he wanted from each session.

The watchword was "quality" as he called for a big effort from all his stars, alongside coaches Ian Culverhouse, Scott Marshall and Gary Karsa.

The players listened intently as the boss made a concerted effort to buoy them with positive thoughts.

It may have been the first day back for the players but not for the manager, however, who has been busy recruiting six players ahead of the coming campaign.

And the boss lifted the lid on the resolute life of being a gaffer.

He said: "I don't think you ever do switch off as a manager.

"Even if you try to switch off, your phone is going all the time with emails and things like that.

"I don't think as a manager you ever switch off - very rarely have I got time to myself.

"But that is the job and we've tried to bring people in to enhance the club."
