Parker Hits Out At 'Fickle' West Ham Fans!

Former Toon midfielder Scott Parker admits he was surprised and upset at being booed by West Ham fans on his return to Upton Park on Monday night.

Parker joined Tottenham last season in a £6million deal after four seasons with the east London club.

During that period he was named 'Hammer of the year' three times, and was also named footballer of the year by the Football Writers' Association in his final season even though the Hammers were relegated from the top flight.

Scott Parker: "I didn't expect the West Ham fans to boo me and obviously it was a little bit upsetting.

"I don't know why (they did it).

"I don't know if it's because I went to their local rivals. I'm not sure, but I just would have liked to think that maybe I would have got a better reception after what I did in my time here.

"I loved (Upton Park), the fans, and I loved the club.

"I had four fantastic years here and it will always be a club with a massive place in my heart. I was looking forward to coming back and I couldn't wait to go out there and play so I was disappointed (to be booed)."
