The Scottish international right back believes that the club has a sound footing from which to push on and grow now, despite the manager's exit and fears over Grant Holt's futureNorwich full-back Russell Martin has backed the club to bounce back from the disappointment of former manager Paul Lambert's departure from the club to take over the reins at Aston Villa.
The 26-year-old played under Lambert during the Canaries' back-to-back promotions on their way to the top flight, but when asked if he thought Lambert's decision to leave the club would hurt them in the long-term, he remained defiant on their prospects.
"No, I do not think so. Unfortunately, that is the game. Obviously we are disappointed, but he has made the decision which is best for his career," Martin told Sky Sports.

"We owe that to him to let him go on with our best wishes. As players, as individuals and as a team, he has helped us enormously.
"I do not think we worry at all. The club and the chief executive and the board members will have their candidates in place.
"There will be a lot of people wanting the job, because it is a great job to take at the minute."
When asked about the future of star striker Grant Holt, who has reportedly been the subject of a £4m bid from newly-promoted West Ham, Martin retained a degree of hope that the front man would reverse his decision to leave the club and stay for next season.
"Holty is a fantastic lad and he has done brilliantly for the club over the past three years. He has been absolutely colossal," he said.
"He has made those decisions [to leave] for his own reasons. Hopefully he stays. But if he does not, he should move on with the players' and the club's best wishes.
"Hopefully he will not be remembered for this. Hopefully it will not end on a sour note. Hopefully he stays."
