Real Madrid captain Ramos rapped dismal Bale at end of Athletic Bilbao draw

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos rapped Gareth Bale at the end of last night's 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao, it has been revealed.

Bale was a second-half substitute for the night, but produced an ineffective performance which angered many teammates, says Diario Gol, including Ramos.

"Not one more, are we?" Ramos snapped at Bale at the final whistle, in reference to the lack of work the Welshman put into his 25 minutes on the pitch.

Bale's refusal to mix with his teammates is now causing resentment, where his habit of listening to music, using his mobile phone and texting is creating frustration amongst the locker room.

Indeed, while in the past Bale had the support of fellow Real players as he battled to find his fitness and form, his current attitude has led to the belief he has no interest in getting back to his best.

Ramos made clear the feelings of many teammates with his words for Bale last night.
