Keane double boosts Lennon's Celtic case

Robbie Keane's two goals to take his tally to 11 in 11 games for Celtic did far more than set up a 3-1 home victory over Kilmarnock – it got the caretaker manager and former club captain Neil Lennon off to a flying start in his attempt to build a case to be appointed permanently at the end of the season.

Celtic's caretaker manager Neil Lennon said yesterday that he wants to manage the Glasgow club on a permanent basis.

League round-up: Danns double lifts the mood as Palace change their focus

Neil Danns brought Crystal Palace's traumatic week to a happier conclusion, scoring both goals in their 2-0 Championship defeat of Peterborough at Selhurst Park. Neil Warnock's side adjusted to going from play-off contenders to relegation scrappers after their fall into administration and the 10-point penalty which dumped them from ninth to 21st when Danns's overhead kick after 28 minutes and slick 65th-minute finish earned a deserved win. Warnock revealed that his coveted striker Victor Moses will soon be a Premier League player, departing for £2.5 million, but described some of the offers the club have had for their young stars as "disgusting, pathetic".

Alex Parker: Scottish international full-back revered at Falkirk and Everton

Alex Parker was that comparatively rare football being, a full-back and a folk hero. Renowned as a poised and stylish yet formidably combative performer while excelling in Everton's confident charge to the League Championship in 1962-63, he was revered no less passionately at his previous club, Falkirk, with whom he was awarded all but one of his 15 caps for Scotland. Accordingly, he occupies a berth in the Toffees' Hall of Fame and was considered an automatic selection for the Bairns' team of the millennium, both honours which were not assigned lightly. Further afield, too, professional regard for the amiable Ayrshireman was virtually boundless, with no less an authority than his exalted countryman Matt Busby, the founding father of the modern Manchester United, declaring that during Parker's prime he knew no peer in his position, anywhere in the world.
