GARETH BALE Has been attacked by the Spanish media yet again – this time accused of an “ugly gesture”.

Bale was a notable absentee for the celebrations, with the former Tottenham man the only Los Blancos player who missed the bash.
Bale tweeted: “CAMPEONES! So disappointed that I’m not able to be part of the celebrations this evening due to a bad back spasm.
“But really proud of the team for winning the title! Enjoy tonight boys! #HalaMadrid.”
However, his tweet didn’t go down well with the Spanish media, who took aim at the Welshman for failing to join his Los Blancos pals at the party.
Real Madrid paper Marca called his absence “an ugly gesture on a day of joy for the squad and the fans”.
Elsewhere, Spanish outlet El Mundo took aim at his recent absence, writing: “The fight to take Wales to the World Cup is his great objective.
“If he fails, there’s a good chance he’ll quit football.
“None of that worries Madrid anymore.”
Bale has won three LaLiga titles and four Champions League crowns during his time at the Bernabeu, scoring over 100 times in all competitions in the process.
But now, following a tough loan spell at Spurs last season, the Welsh ace is set to move to the MLS to join DC United or even return to boyhood club Cardiff in the summer.
However, Bale is reportedly keen to stay in Spain, albeit with a different club.
Even then, if Wales lose their World Cup play-off clash against one of Scotland and Ukraine, Bale could hang up his boots entirely.
