Tottenham defender Kyle Walker says teammate Gareth Bale needs protection from refs.

Spurs superstar Bale could return from injury against Swansea tomorrow, having been booked in both of his last two Prem games for simulation.

But right-back Walker said: "If you get kicked and just stop, you are never going to get the foul.

"But if you go down you get the foul, so what else can you do?"
