Scott Parker admits Tottenham's players were lifted by manager Harry Redknapp's return to the dugout for victory over Aston Villa.

Spurs triumphed 2-0, Emmanuel Adebayor scoring both goals in the first half, as they celebrated Redknapp's return to the fold following a minor heart procedure.

Parker paid tribute to his returning manager, and said: "The manager has been absolutely superb, he's done wonders and it's a great lift to see him and pleasing to have him back.

"His guidance for us is key and I think that was evident tonight."
