Paul Lambert is a former Scottish midfielder, captain of Celtic and the Scottish national team. He is probably most well known for marking Zinedine Zidane out of the game in the 1997 Champions League final, also bagging an assist in Borussia Dortmund's 3-1 win, becoming the first British player to win the Champions League. In Scotland he is best remembered as the captain of the Celtic team that reached the UEFA Cup final in 2003. Lambert was a very solid defensive midfielder, with excellent marking skills and good reactions, able to nullify the opposition by cutting off passing lanes and generally being a nuisance by constantly hassling players and not giving them any room to breathe. He was also a pretty good distributor of the ball and was adept at winning the ball back and immediately turning defence into attack. He also always made himself available for his teammates to pass to, constantly on the move finding small spaces to advance the ball forward from. He also scored some important and excellent goals, notable among them a last minute rocket against Rangers on New Years Day 1998. He was far from perfect though: he had good technique in trapping the ball but he was a weak dribbler which made him susceptible to pressing from the opposition, sometimes losing the ball in dangerous situations or not being able to create the space to make a better pass. Still though, he is very fondly remembered by fans of every club he played at, and has an argument to be Scotland's most successful footballing export in mainland Europe.
