Tottenham boss Redknapp defends Bale selection for Everton defeat

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has defended his tactics for defeat at Everton.

Redknapp came in for some criticism from the visiting fans for playing Gareth Bale on the right wing for virtually the entire match.

However, he defended his selection saying: "I switched him because we haven't got a wide right player.

"I've got people that can play off the left, Niko Kranjcar and Luka Modric, but there's no one at the club apart from Aaron Lennon and David Bentley that can play wide right so it's a problem.

"He plays on the right for Wales anyway and he likes to come in on the left foot and he pinned (Leighton) Baines back.

"We penned them in and just couldn't get the break."
