Gareth Bale has criticised Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam for a second bad tackle which left the Tottenham winger on crutches.

Adam injured Bale with a challenge during the 0-0 draw between the two sides at the M&T Bank stadium, home of NFL franchise the Baltimore Ravens. In May 2011 the Scotland international injured Bale in a tackle, causing ankle ligament damage which meant the Wales international was out for three months.

In quotes reported by several national newspapers, Bale said: "He's a bit of a coward. What he did was over the top. Some people are like that and it's just wrong."
