Heated: Osman confronts Bale about his actions
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp
defended Gareth Bale against accusations of diving after the latest
incident in which the Welshman's honesty appeared to be questioned.
Leon Osman exchanged angry words with
Bale after the Spurs man took a tumble following a fair-looking
challenge in Everton's 1-0 victory over Tottenham at Goodison Park.
He was recently accused of winning
penalties against Arsenal and Stevenage but Redknapp said: 'He runs so
quickly and when you're running at the pace he does and you change
direction, you get clipped and you go over.
'When you're that quick, it can
happen so I don't think he goes over too easily. He gets chopped down an
awful lot but that's also part of the game and he has to accept it.'
