Redknapp hails brilliant Bale

Next Story

Wales and Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has a talent which is starting to rival that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, according to his ex-club boss Harry Redknapp.

Bale impressed with two goals in a match-winning performance in Wales' World Cup qualifier against Scotland last week, earning Chris Coleman his first win in charge of the national side.

"He's an amazing, amazing talent and he's after the Ronaldos and Messis of this world and he's getting better and better," Redknapp told BBC Sport ahead of Wales' qualifier against Croatia. "He's almost unplayable when he's on his game. He is a genuine world-class player."
