Bale's hot-and-cold relationship with Los Blancos reached a new low last month, when the Welshman hit back at a perceived lack of support from the club by holding an inflammatory flag while on international duty. 

Upon his return to club football, the former Tottenham Hotspur star was met by a hostile environment at the Santiago Bernabeu, where he has been consistently jeered by his own supporters in matches since.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Bale revealed what it was like to be booed by his own team's supporters, and explained how he reacts to it when it happens.

"I think the first time it happened (being booed), it was a bit of a shock. I didn't really know how to deal with it," the 30-year-old said.

"But as I've got older, it's happened one or two more times and you understand how to deal with it.

"Now I just shrug it off. In a way, with respect, it's the best place to get whistled if you don't perform, which I understand.

"Obviously, I have to just keep working hard and keep proving to the fans what I can do. Eventually the whistles do stop and you get on with your career like normal."
