The Real Mallorca defender, on loan from Aston Villa, and his Scotland teammates are preparing for Friday's World Cup qualifier with the Welsh who will deploy Tottenham superstar Bale at Hampden Park.
"Bale can be unbelievable at times, but he is just another player. Wales need to worry about us also because we have some great attacking players and we are a good force going forward," he said.
"So they are also going to have to watch us. This game won't just be about us stopping Gareth Bale.
"We have to take the game to them because we are at home, and we should not go into it worrying about one of their players.
"Obviously you have to be careful with him, but we can't be 100 per cent focused just on him.
"We will want them to worry more about us."
