Fulham could turn to Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke as they consider experienced Championship boss over Scott Parker


STEVE CLARKE has emerged as a contender for the Fulham job this summer.

The Scot, 55, will be under discussion when the club look at plans for next season in the Championship following relegation.

Scott Parker has been in charge as caretaker since Claudio Ranieri’s dismissal but ALL options will considered at Craven Cottage.

Clarke is a Chelsea legend after more than a decade as a player with Fulham’s neighbours, then enjoyed success as assistant manager to Jose Mourinho.

He has impressed this season at Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership and has guided them to third place behind Celtic and Rangers.

That came after a year out of the game following spells at West Brom, Reading and Aston Villa.

And his experience in the top-flight and Championship has put him among those in the frame for Fulham’s attempt at bouncing back.

The next boss will take over a squad that had £100million invested in players but now find themselves back in the second tier, with some players facing pay cuts after going down.

Despite an upturn in performances, Parker has lost every game as caretaker boss and has been unable to end a run of defeats that now stretches back to January.
