Lambert criticises 'ridiculous' penalty

Paul Lambert says the officials "weren't strong" enough during Aston Villa's 5-0 defeat at Manchester City.

The Villa manager describes a controversially-awarded penalty to City as "absolutely ridiculous", with Austrian striker Andreas Weimann adjudged to have handled in the box with the game delicately poised at 1-0, citing the decision as a "massive call".

Despite suffering a seventh loss of the season, Lambert is convinced his young side will "bounce back" from the heavy defeat.
