Gareth Bale bids farewell to White Hart Lane with heartfelt Twitter message
By Harvey Byrne
Former Tottenham star Gareth Bale has finally sent his farewells to his old stomping ground White Hart Lane, posting on Twitter that it “will always be a special place.”
The famous ground is currently being demolished as the north London side plan to move into a new 61,000-seater stadium right next to their old location.
This has meant that Spurs had to play in their final ever game at White Hart Lane last season as they plan to move into England’s iconic Wembley Stadium for the next campaign.
Many associated with Tottenham have already paid their personal tribute to White Hart Lane and on Thursday, five days after winning the Champions League in Cardiff, Bale posted his heartfelt message via his own Twitter account alongside an image of himself in the Spurs colours.

It took him a while to settle with Spurs, but once he got going there was no stopping him and he ended up moving to European giants Real Madrid just six years later in 2013 for a then record £85.3million.
He has continued his success in Madrid and Tottenham fans still view him highly after he scored 56 goals, while providing 58 in 203 appearances for the north London club.
