HARRY REDKNAPP LIKENS SCOTT PARKER TO SPURS LEGEND DAVE MACKAY

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Scott Parker's display in the win over Queens Park Rangers was reminiscent of former Spurs great Dave Mackay.

Two goals from Gareth Bale helped Spurs to victory but Redknapp reserved his greatest praise for the midfielder, 31.

"Parker was just amazing, I haven't seen many displays like that," he said.


"You hate to mention anyone in the same breath as Dave Mackay, who was one of finest players at this club, but it was right up there with the best."


Redknapp added: "Dave would have been proud of that performance. He won every tackle, he broke things up, his all round play was top class. He's made a big difference."

Former Spurs midfielder Mackay, 76, was a talismanic presence at the north London club for nine years, and part of the team that won the league and FA Cup double in 1961.

Parker joined Spurs from West Ham in pre-season for about £5m and since he made his debut against Wolves on 10 September, Redknapp's side have gone on a seven-match unbeaten run in the Premier League - including six wins - that has lifted them to fifth in the table.



Welshman Bale was equally effusive about his team-mate.

"Scott has been great for us since he signed," he said. "He has a massive job in the team and he does it better than anyone."

Parker was voted Football Writers' Association Player of the Year for 2010-11, despite being relegated to the Championship with West Ham.

And his performances have seen him re-establish himself as a key part of the England team ahead of the European Championship finals next summer.
