Both of our senior right-sided defensive midfielders have had their injury issues this season but the only fortunate aspect for the club is that neither Sandro nor Scott Parker were sidelined at the same time. Scott came back into the starting XI on a permanent basis after the Brazilian’s season ending knee injury at QPR but his performances have raised a fair amount of criticism from supporters.
Parker will be 33 in October and while pace has never been a part of his game, there are obvious suggestions that the player is some way past his best. There are also rumours today that his former manager Harry Redknapp is aiming to take the England International to Loftus Road as QPR prepare to battle for a Premiership return.
The pieces seem to fit but the issue is Parker’s desire to make the England squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil – an unlikely quest if you drop into the Championship and fall outside of the manager’s radar.
But the rumours will continue so is this the end for Scott or do you feel that he has a role to play at the Lane next season?
