der Vaart was withdrawn in the second half of the first-leg
clash in Milan with a calf problem.
Asked if Bale would available for the game at White Hart
Lane, Redknapp told reporters: "I'm hoping. He feels OK. He has
just got to push himself through it now. He feels fine and
obviously we'd love him back.
"Rafa is the same. I don't think Rafa will be fit for Sunday

Milan," he added at the club's training ground.
