GRANT Han­ley says new boss Paul Lam­bert has wasted lit­tle time in lay­ing down the law at Black­burn Rovers.

Gary Bowyer was axed a fort­night ago and a leaner, fit­ter Paul Lam­bert – who says he cy­cles up to 70 miles a week – is back in man­age­ment af­ter his own de­par­ture from As­ton Villa in Fe­bru­ary.

And he’s im­me­di­ately left an im­pres­sion on Rovers skip­per Han­ley, 24, as Lam­bert looks to kick-start a team that had won just three games in the Cham­pi­onship prior to the week­end.

“The in­ten­sity of train­ing has been top notch – and not just be­cause it’s a new man­ager com­ing in and ev­ery­body wants to im­press, but be­cause of the de­mands he has put on us,” he said.

“With a new man­ager comes new ideas. Ev­ery­thing is a bit dif­fer­ent, but it has been good.”
