Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has snapped back at his critics.

Bale came off the bench to win a penalty in Real's 2-0 victory over Malaga and the world's most expensive player insists the injury rumours were exaggerated and that he is now back to fitness.

"It was just a little thigh strain that was blown massively out of proportion," Bale told Real Madrid TV. "It is just a minor injury and I'm back now.

"I've not had a lot of game time, pre-season, training or running so you pick up little niggles.

"I have to take one step at a time. I've not had much training or games. It's all about building me up now."
