Despite scoring the winner for Real Madrid on the weekend, Gareth Bale did not celebrate with his teammates, and even pushed Lucas Vazquez away. The reason for his subdued mood has now seemingly been revealed.
Click through the mini-gallery above to see some images of Bale's subdued celebration.
Bale, who came off the bench in the second half, converted a controversial penalty in Real's 2-1 win over Levante in the absence of Sergio Ramos.
However, to the surprise of many, the Welshman did not celebrate the important goal, and even pushed away Vazquez as the Spaniard attempted to celebrate with him.
With many questioning Bale's antics, The Sun has now claimed he is unhappy with Thibaut Courtois and several of his other Los Blancos teammates.
The 29-year-old reportedly feels the Belgian and Marcelo have fueled an anti-feeling towards him with their latest public comments.
The goalkeeper recently spilled the beans on Bale's nickname within the squad – he is apparently called "The Golfer" by his playing colleagues because he reportedly prefers a nine-hole instead of mixing with his teammates off the pitch.
Courtois also revealed that Bale and Toni Kroos recently snubbed a team dinner because it was too late for them, while Marcelo said that the Welshman, who sits next to him in the dressing room, still hardly speaks Spanish and cannot communicate much with his teammates.
Bale will have another chance to shine in this week's double El Clasico, when Real first host FC Barcelona in the second leg of their Copa del Rey tie on Wednesday before welcoming them again to the Santiago Bernabeu for a LaLiga clash on Saturday.
