Paul Lambert and John Hughes rule out Burnley switch
Lambert denies Burnley rumours
Norwich boss Paul Lambert and John Hughes, of Hibernian, have ruled themselves out of the running for the vacant manager's job at Burnley.
The Premier League outfit are seeking to replace Owen Coyle, who was confirmed as Bolton boss on Friday.
Bookies' favourite Lambert told BBC Look East: "All you need to know is I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying here."
Hughes said: "I'm not interested. I've worked ever so hard to get to Hibs and it's only speculation."
Burnley midfielder Graham Alexander said he would like to see caretaker boss Steve Davis given the job permanently.
"It would be great if he was offered the job, or was in the running for it, because I'm sure he would do a fantastic job," said Alexander.
Davis, who made over 300 appearances for the Clarets, would have the full backing of the Turf Moor playing staff according to Alexander.
"He is a Burnley legend and the players do look up to Steve because a couple of the lads have played with him in their career and the young lads see him as a figurehead of the coaching set-up," said the 38-year-old veteran.
"He [Davis] is held in high esteem by all the Burnley fans and the people around the club," added Alexander.
Scottish duo Lambert and Hughes took over at their respective clubs in the summer.
Lambert left Colchester for the Canaries in August after masterminding the U's 7-1 win at Carrow Road, while Hughes left Falkirk to take over at Easter Road in June following the departure of Mixu Paatelainen.
