Spurs boss Redknapp: Bale unplayable, unstoppable

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp hailed Gareth Bale after their superb win over Norwich City.

The 22-year-old latched on to Emmanuel Adebayor's pass to put Tottenham ahead in the second half before scoring an exquisite lob after racing half of the pitch to seal the win for the visitors soon after.

Redknapp said: "I played him and Rafa up there, rather than sticking him out on left wing because when he picks it up and runs at you through the middle and he pops up in positions between midfield and defence, it's difficult to pick him up. When he finds those holes he is unplayable.

"I like it when he plays there. I just think sometimes when he stands out wide people go and mark him and then it's difficult to get him in the game sometimes.

"Once he turns and runs with it like he did for the second goal, he is unstoppable. There was no catching him tonight.

"He did ever so well. He is a special talent. He has everything."
