Lambert: I'd give Player of the Year awards to all of them


Paul Lambert believes all of his lions deserve the prestigious Player of the Year gongs.

Villa's top stars will be announced on Tuesday as Villa host their annual Awards Dinner.

The Holte Suite will provide the setting for a gala dinner where various honours will be handed out, culminating in the prestigious Player of the Year distinctions, as voted for by both fans and players.

The race for both high-profile accolades look set to be contested between Brad Guzan, Christian Benteke and Andreas Weimann but Lambert would, in an ideal world, prefer them to be shared among the squad.

That's due in the main to the collective spirit in the camp and the way they have all weathered the storms that have come their way during a challenging season on the pitch.

He said: "I would give it to every single one of them for what they have been through.

"Collectively, the way they've come through it and the character they've shown, they've been absolutely fantastic.

"Whoever gets it, it will be well and truly deserved.

"I like star performances if you can get them but the most important thing is everybody contributes.

"As a team and a group, they've been outstanding."
