Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp thinks that the sudden death of Gary Speed is "beyond belief".

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that he can't get over the tragic news of Gary Speed's death.

The 42-year-old is believed to have taken his own life at his home in Cheshire at the weekend.

"I heard the news on Sunday, you can't get it out of your mind," said Redknapp. "It's just been unbelievable really. He was a lad that I never ever heard anybody say a bad word about him. Everybody just loved him.

"As everybody said the most unlikely lad you could ever see doing something like that, It's just beyond belief."

A host of Championship matches, along with Chelsea and Liverpool's Carling Cup clash at Stamford Bridge, will hold a minute's silence before the games this evening.
