Scot managed Martin at both Wycombe and CityFORMER Norwich City manager Paul Lambert paid tribute to Russell Martin after the Canaries' skipper brought up his 300th appearance for the Club against Brighton last week.
Lambert brought Martin to Carrow Road from Peterborough United on an initial loan deal in 2009, having previously managed him when the pair were at Wycombe Wanderers.
Speaking to matchday programme 'OTBC', the now Wolves boss said: "I'm delighted for Russell that he's reached the landmark of 300 appearances.
"It doesn’t happen for too many players at one club these days. We had a great time at Wycombe and Russell was part of the squad that took us to the League Cup semi-finals.
"At Norwich he was a big part of the promotion and was a great lad. He was part of a group I had that was brilliant to work with and was a major part of everything that was good about Norwich.
"I couldn't have done the job I did there without him and all the other lads like him. Russell has had some great success and he has thoroughly deserved it all.
"It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. He's a top lad and a top pro and it is through sheer hard work and dedication that he has got the success that he has."
