Gallacher yet to decide future
Paul Gallacher has yet to make a decision on whether his future lies at Carrow Road - and there is no way the club will be rushing him into it. The Scottish international goalkeeper again proved a more than able deputy for Robert Green at the weekend, making a string of top quality saves as the Canaries came away from Cardiff with a hard earned victory.
Paul Gallacher has yet to make a decision on whether his future lies at Carrow Road - and there is no way the club will be rushing him into it.
The Scottish international goalkeeper again proved a more than able deputy for Robert Green at the weekend, making a string of top quality saves as the Canaries came away from Cardiff with a hard earned victory.
Gallacher has now turned in three thoroughly convincing displays for the Canaries in the space of eight days, and with his contract running out during the summer Worthington is anxious to sort something out for next season.
But he is prepared to give the player all the time he needs to talk over the situation with his family and advisors before deciding whether to stick with Norwich or return north in search of regular first team football.

"It's one of those situations,” said the City boss. “Paul has got to decide where he wants to be. If he wants to stay with Norwich City then there is an opportunity for him to sit down and talk.
"I am not expecting a rush decision. He'll take his time and we'll take our time and hopefully there will be a compromise in the middle which means he will be at the club next season.”

Gallacher may have done all that was asked of him on Saturday but he was still upstaged by Cardiff old-boy Robert Earnshaw who scored his best goal yet for his new club to settle the game.
Worthington had words of praise for the man who has now scored seven times in 12 starts, and also paid tribute to the 600 travelling supporters whose day he helped to make.
All the City players threw their shirts into the crowd at the final whistle, and the City manager felt that was an appropriate gesture to reward the loyalty of the travelling army.
"Anyone who spends so much time and money travelling that far deserves some recognition,” he said. “I just wish we could have performed like that a little more often for them, but we haven't. Today we got a good result and we thanked them for their support as we always do. Hopefully that will make the journey back home seem a little bit shorter.
"As for Rob, we know he can score goals and it was an excellent finish. He had time to think about it but he just lashed it into the back of the net.
"He started his career at Cardiff and achieve a lot with them. Their fans recognised that and applauded his goal along with our supporters, which was good to see.”
