Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has played down concerns over Gareth Bale's hamstring injury and is confident that the Welshman will be fit to play against Manchester United on Sunday.

Bale had to pull out of Wales' friendly against Costa Rica on Wednesday after feeling a tightness in his hamstring and reports had suggested he could be out for up to three weeks.

Redknapp denies that is the case, however, and when asked about the reports that Bale was set for a long-term lay-off, said: "That's absolutely a million miles wrong."
