Fulham have officially announced that former Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker will take over as caretaker manager of the club until the end of the season after they decided to part ways with Claudio Ranieri after just three months in charge of the club.

Parker served as the club’s assistant coach under Ranieri as well as Slavisa Jokanovic before him, and the club have decided to turn to him to try and pull off a remarkable rescue act.

Fulham now find themselves in 19th spot, 10 points behind safety and would need a minor miracle to stay alive.

Parker was, of course, a fan favourite in the two years he spent at White Hart Lane after joining from West Ham in the summer of 2011. The midfielder went on to feature 63 times for Spurs as he played a big part in the club’s fourth-place finish in the 11/12 season.

Parker went on to coach the Under 18s at Tottenham after his retirement, and was highly rated as coach during his time at the club.

We at Spurs Web would like to wish Scotty the best in his new journey.
