Harry Redknapp described Gareth Bale as a player with 'absolutely everything' after another outstanding display against Swansea on Sunday.

Gareth 'a unique talent' - Harry

The flying winger was a constant thorn in Swansea's side as we ran out 3-1 winners at the Lane.

A dart down the left and cross set-up the first goal for Rafa van der Vaart in the 19th minute and he then went close twice before carving out the half's final chance for Luka Modric.

After the break, Rafa's header from Gareth's cross was well saved by Michel Vorm, Gareth's right-foot shot was also taken by the goalkeeer, he then beat four players and set-up a chance for Luka and was finally involved in the move that led to Emmanuel Adebayor's second and clinching second goal, when his shot was palmed out by Michel Vorm to Aaron Lennon, who crossed for Ade to power home a header.

"He’s an amazing talent, an amazing player," said Harry.

"He’s got the ability to run all day, to beat people, to dribble, to shoot, to head it. He can do everything, really. He’s a unique player, a special talent.

"He's a fantastic young player and a great lad as well. He’s got absolutely everything. There isn’t a weakness in his make-up as a footballer.

"We’ve a lot of good players and it was a great team effort. I thought the pressing, the work the lads put in, you have to work that hard against Swansea if you want a result and we did that."
