Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker wants those responsible for the sick derby chants on Sunday to be banned from the game.

Spurs and Arsenal issued a joint statement in the aftermath of the game in which they outlined their disappointment at the chanting towards Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor in particular.

"It is probably the one sport that people can abuse other people and it seems half acceptable," he said.

"It is so wrong it is a joke.

"Just because you play for an opposing team doesn't give people the right to abuse you.

"I didn't hear it at the weekend but I have seen some of the stuff that has been written. If that was the case, the people who were involved need to be dealt with."
