Gareth Bale was the subject of abuse by the Real Madrid faithful once again last night after the Spanish giants were eliminated from the Champions League at the semi-final stage.
As reported by the Mirror, the Welsh wizard, who has endured a tricky second campaign at the club, was called a 'son of a b****' by fans when in his car attempting to leave the Bernabeu yesterday evening.
Bale, of course, featured in the showdown with Italian giants Juventus, as he failed to find the back of the net despite numerous opportunities to keep his side in the competition.

It has been well documented in recent time that Bale is struggling in the Spanish capital, with a number of recent reports linking him with a return to the Premier League sooner rather than later.
In fact, it has often been suggested that Manchester United will tempt him with a move back to England, but it remains to be seen as to whether Louis van Gaal and Co. step up their interest in the player anytime soon.

One thing's for sure, after last night's exit, it's not going to get any easier for the player, with the Spanish giants also looking set to miss out on La Liga silverware once again this term.
There's no doubt about it, Bale has often been made a scapegoat by the Real faithful, but he came out fighting last night, claiming that he was unlucky not to score that all important goal.
After the game, the Real ace stated: "I was unlucky not to grab one. As long as I keep trying, usually one goes in. Unfortunately it didn't happen tonight and you move on."
It won't go away
In truth, despite Bale's determination to succeed in Spain, speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United probably won't go away anytime soon.
At the end of the day, something doesn't seem quite right with him in Madrid, so it's inevitable that the Red Devils will have an interest in his signature.
You can hardly blame them: Bale is without a doubt one of the standout players in world football, and would only improve any Premier League side. If Manchester United get the opportunity to bring Bale back to England, then they have to take it as they go in search of long term success under Van Gaal. It looks set to be an interesting summer for all those involved.
