The treatment of Gareth Bale by Real Madrid fans is "nothing short of a disgrace", according to his agent.

The 29-year-old was jeered by Real fans on Saturday when replaced by Marco Asensio in the 61st minute as they suffered their second defeat to rivals Barcelona in just four days at the Santiago Bernabeu. "Frankly they should be ashamed of themselves", Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, told Sky Sports News.

Gareth deserves the greatest of respect.

"The fans are a disgrace. Those fans should be kissing his feet".

With the Champions League Madrid's only chance of a trophy, Croatia worldwide Modric told a news conference ahead of the second leg at home to Ajax: "Cristiano is a player who any team would miss". The people writing these things know nothing about him.

It would be quite fitting to see a future Barcelona player cap off a miserable week for Real Madrid by helping knock them out of the Champions League.

Welsh forward Gareth Bale has endured a mixed spell in the Spanish capital, finding trophies, injuries and criticism in equal measure. It's happened to me in the past.

"He works hard, he's got the desire and he wants to return to the usual Bale and help the team for the rest of the season".
