Harry Redknapp reported this morning that he expects Gareth Bale to miss the rest of the season with the ankle injury he picked up against Blackpool on Saturday.

The Welsh winger was stretchered off just after the hour mark of the 1-1 draw at the Lane.

"He's going for a scan, we'll have to wait and see but it looks like he's done his ankle ligaments," said Harry at Spurs Lodge this morning (Monday, May 9).

"It was a bad ankle knock. I wouldn't think he would play this season, it'll keep him out now. It's badly swollen so we'll just wait and see what the damage is."

Harry also reported fresh injury doubts over Luka Modric (hip), Jermaine Jenas (thigh) and Peter Crouch (back) ahead of Tuesday night's key trip to Manchester City in the Premier League.

Tom Huddlestone (ankle), Benoit Assou-Ekotto (hamstring), Wilson Palacios (knee) and Alan Hutton (knee) all remain sidelined.
