Gareth Bale out for season


Gareth Bale out for season

The Wales international has injured his foot and will miss the rest of the season

Spurs fans had hoped they would see the left-back back in action towards the end of the season after being sidelined since last December.

"Although the surgeon was happy with the results of the X-rays he does not anticipate Gareth playing any further part this season," said Spurs sporting director Damian Comolli.

The sprain to his ligament will be a setback for Tottenham boss Juande Ramos. "We are all disappointed, but his long-term fitness is our priority."

The 18-year old has been impressive in his 12 appearances and he had proved that he is versatile and can play in defence as well as mid-field.
