Paul Lambert will be announced as Ipswich Town manager tomorrow.

It’s understood that the Blues are very conscious of the fact that today is the funeral of club legend Kevin Beattie.

The funeral procession for the club’s greatest ever player will pass by Sir Bobby Robson’s statue, outside of Portman Road, at approximately 2.30pm.

There’s also the fact that some final negotiations are ongoing with two members of staff that Lambert wants to bring with him to Portman Road.
