Harry Redknapp described Gareth Bale as 'an amazing talent' after his performance against Bolton.

The Welsh wizard opened the scoring in emotional circumstances at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Having flicked home Luka Modric's free-kick in the seventh minute, Gareth removed his boot to reveal a personal tribute to Gary Speed, his national boss who sadly passed away last weekend. The boot had 'RIP Gary Speed' stitched into it.

Aaron Lennon made it 2-0 in the 50th minute and Gareth was there again on the hour to flick on another Luka corner for Jermain Defoe to complete the 3-0 victory.

"Gareth's got everything," said Harry. "He's got pace, he's six-foot-two, an athlete, he can do the lot.

"He's learning the game all the time and how to hurt defences with his movement.

"He's difficult to mark, comes in off the line and gets into little pockets. He doesn't just stand on the line and get marked out of the game, he looks to mix his game up.

"He's a top-class player, a complete footballer."
