Tottenham boss Redknapp wary of Bale burning out

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he's wary of burning out Gareth Bale.

Redknapp will not consider Bale for tonight's Carling Cup clash with Arsenal.

He said: "I can't kill off Gareth Bale. He had two games for his country, then ran a million miles in Germany [against Werder Bremen] down that left flank. He's still a boy. He's running on empty. I've got to protect him a bit."
