Kevin Bond became the latest in a long list of people to heap praise on the impact Scott Parker has made since joining Tottenham on transfer deadline day - and paid special tribute to his lung-busting display which helped down QPR in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

Described as an 'amazing performance' by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, his right-hand man has followed suit and joined the chorus of approval for his committed showings.

Parker is yet to taste defeat with his new club, with the latest 3-1 victory making it six wins from his seven league outings for Tottenham.

"I thought Scott was fantastic from the first minute," enthused Bond. "He won every tackle, set the tempo for us and set us up on the counter-attack when he won possession.

"He was awesome. His passing was brilliant. He didn't do a thing wrong from the moment we started until he came off shattered with five minutes to go."

A scintillating first-half display meant Spurs should have been out of sight by the interval, but went into the break with a 2-0 lead, which was quickly pegged back with a goal from Rangers substitute Jay Bothroyd.

"We knew Neil [Warnock] would try to get a reaction, he made a couple of changes and the next goal was always going to be important," Bond added. "2-1 it's game on, [whereas] 3-0 kills it.

"That's what happened, a second ball from a set-piece and you are thinking 'here we go'. Thankfully that wasn't the case, we scored another great goal and ran out deserved winners."
