Fulham appoint Scott Parker as permanent manager ahead of Championship return

The 38-year-old, who began the season as assistant to Claudio Ranieri, took over as caretaker boss when the Italian was sacked at the end of February.

He could not save the Cottagers from relegation, but after a run of three wins in his last four games, the Englishman has earned the job on a permanent basis.

Fulham chairman Shahid Khan praised the former midfielder for transforming the west Londoners into a better club during his brief spell in charge.

The business tycoon has now tasked Parker with delivering an immediate return to the Premier League next season.
