Bale 'not fussed' about 'disgusting' Spanish press headlines

Gareth Bale labelled Spanish newspaper headlines targeting him as "disgusting" after his two goals against Austria put Wales within one game of reaching the World Cup. 

Wales moved one step closer to their first World Cup since 1958 as Bale stole the show in a 2-1 win over Austria in the play-off semi-final.

Spanish media outlets had criticised Bale after he linked up with Wales having been absent for Real Madrid in Sunday's El Clasico against Barcelona.

Spanish newspaper Marca ran the image of a happy looking Bale and Joe Rodon in Welsh training gear alongside the headline "it doesn't hurt anymore".

Bale was also called a "parasite" by a journalist for Marca.
