Harry Redknapp expects Gareth Bale to be fit to face Real Madrid in the first leg of our Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday night.

Speaking at the Bernabeu this evening (Monday), the manager said Gareth should 'be fine' after overcoming a hamstring injury.

"He's going to train tonight and if he's okay, he will play," said Harry.

There was also good news on William Gallas in that the defender has made the trip out to Spain and will also train this evening. "We're hoping he's going to be fit."

However, Steven Pienaar hasn't made the trip because of a groin injury and Niko Kranjcar is a late doubt after picking up a foot injury against Wigan on Saturday.

Tom Huddlestone - back on the bench at Wigan - is in the squad but Alan Hutton (knee) Ledley King (groin), Jonathan Woodgate (groin), Younes Kaboul (thigh) and Wilson Palacios (knee) remain sidelined.
