Harry Redknapp Says Gareth Bales Wasn’t Injured

Harry Redknapp has dined reports made by the Wales manager Gary Speed that claimed that Gareth Bale was already injured when he reported for international duty.

Redknapp will now be without the winger but could have him back to face Real Madrid.

“I wouldn’t have let him go if he had an injury,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

“Gareth played for 90 minutes against West Ham on Saturday and they tell me the figures from that game show he covered more ground than he’s ever done before.

“There was no sign of a hamstring injury. He’s not come in after the game and said his hamstrings were tight.

“When he left here on Saturday, off he went and he certainly wasn’t injured.

“He hasn’t had a hamstring injury. He had a back, then he had a tight thigh and we’ve been very careful with him.

“Now he’s got a hamstring. He must’ve done it with Wales. I’m not blaming anyone. It’s no-one’s fault.

“The first I heard of it was at 10 o’clock on Wednesday night when our physio called me. I feared the worst but he’s seen our physio and it’s only tightness.

“There’s no tear but if he plays and it pings, he’s had it.”
