Welsh wizard left White Hart Lane with no problems says Spurs boss.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp denies claims from Wales that Gareth Bale was already injured when he joined up with the national squad.
The 21-year-old will miss the Euro 2012 qualifier against England on Saturday after picking up a minor hamstring injury.
Scans show the injury is not too serious but Redknapp will hope the winger will recover soon for the Champions League quarter-final with Real Madrid in two weeks.
The Spurs boss expected Bale to play against England after playing the whole game in the 0-0 draw with West Ham.
“I wouldn’t have let him go if he had an injury,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
“Gareth played for 90 minutes against West Ham on Saturday and they tell me the figures from that game show he covered more ground than he’s ever done before.
“There was no sign of a hamstring injury. He’s not come in after the game and said his hamstrings were tight.
“When he left here on Saturday, off he went and he certainly wasn’t injured.
“He hasn’t had a hamstring injury. He had a back, then he had a tight thigh and we’ve been very careful with him.
“Now he’s got a hamstring. He must’ve done it with Wales. I’m not blaming anyone. It’s no-one’s fault.
“The first I heard of it was at 10 o’clock on Wednesday night when our physio called me. I feared the worst but he’s seen our physio and it’s only tightness.
“There’s no tear but if he plays and it pings, he’s had it.”
