Parker wants it all m'lady

Garry Parker has his wish list all ready written for season 2010-11. Garry Parker has targeted a triple in his first season at Parkhead. But the former Aston Villa and Leicester midfielder and new Celtic first-team coach is well aware of the size of task which faces the Hoops. Parker has joined his old team-mate Neil Lennon in Glasgow to complete the Celtic manager's backroom staff, which also includes Johan Mjallby and Alan Thompson. The aim now is to bring the SPL title back to Parkhead and prevent their Old Firm rivals from claiming a third successive championship. Parker said: "Your aim is always to win everything you enter. But I can't come in here and say we're going to do this and do that. We've just got to be judged on each game as it comes and hopefully if we can win enough games then at the end of the season we'll be in a position to win the league. The hardest thing in football is winning football matches but that is what we want to do, and we want to win as many as we can." Parker played alongside Lennon at Leicester and revealed how the Northern Irishman promised him a coaching role when he landed his first job in management. Parker said: "It's a good opportunity and I'm looking forward to it. I've known Neil a long time, we played together at Leicester and he always said if he got a management job he would want me to come with him so we've stayed in touch. We're quite close. I came up to Glasgow on Wednesday and I'm staying with Neil so he's been telling me all about the place. I'm looking forward to getting started." Parker has been impressed by all that he has seen since his arrival. He said: "Everything here is lovely, the training ground is lovely and the facilities are good. This is a massive club and it's all about getting the team on the pitch and getting results. There is a great history behind Celtic and the longer I'm here the more I'll find out."
