The Welshman struck after missing recent games due to injury.
"We picked up three important points and I'm very happy with my goal, but the important thing is that the team wins and that we put pressure on our rivals for the league title. The team is doing really well and we're having a good time on the pitch. Proof of that is in the results," said Bale.
"I scored a fantastic goal and gave an assist. I'm really happy and available to the coach to play the upcoming matches. I work hard on the pitch and at each training session to play in the starting 11. Then it's up to the coach to decide."
