Holloway defended Adam for the role he played in Bale's departure from the game, insisting that the Scot, who almost joined Spurs in January, would never have intentionally hurt the star.
The former QPR manager also hit at out former England manager Kevin Keegan who, in his role as ESPN pundit commenting on the match, claimed that the midfielder looked to have meant to injure Bale.
"He (Adam) almost came here so why would he want to hurt anybody?" Holloway said.
"He hasn't got it in him. At this level, the game is so quick.
"Charlie tried to get there and it was genuine so I'm disappointed that Kevin says that.
"He is entitled to his own opinion but I totally disagree with it."
