Gareth Bale hits four against Rayo Vallecano in 10-2 rout

There was a time this afternoon when Rayo Vallecano were beating Real Madrid 2-1 - and yet somehow the final scored ended up 10-2.

The turning point of the game came after just 14 minutes. Before then, Rayo were fighting the good fight and doing a good job of it too; goals from Antonio Amaya and Jozabed had given the away side the lead after Danilo had put Madrid ahead.

Then, things started going bat**** mental. Tito was sent off and Raul Baena went 10 minutes later so Rayo decided that the best thing to do was to do, well, nothing. Least of all defend.

Step forward, Gareth Bale. The former Tottenham man moved up to second on the list marked 'most goals in La Liga by a British player', and he did so in style - banging in four goals across both halves in around 45 minutes to save Rafa Benitez's ruby cheeks from growing even redder.

Of course, there can't be a party in Madrid without Ronaldo being centre of attention and the Portuguese superstar got in on the act with a brace of his own, including a 30th minute spot-kick.

Karim Benzema bagged a brace of his own as time started to disappear along with any dignity Rayo Vallecano had left, before completing his hat-trick as the clock hit 90.

On a frankly crazy afternoon where Liverpool were spanked by Watford, and where Jose Mourinho is sniffing around Louis van Gaal's job, we've done our best to round-up as many of the best tweets as possible, with the Real Madrid goals as well. It wasn't easy, but here you go, you lucky little devils.
