Bale works in the gym

Gareth Bale continues to train separately from his Real Madrid teammates, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos are back to a full workout.

The Welshman was confirmed earlier this week as having suffered inflammation of a calf muscle after a knock picking up in training on Tuesday.

Whilst ruling him out of the midweek squad for the Copa del Rey match with Xativa, the club have indicated that Bale is not yet out of contention to make Sunday’s League trip to Valencia, but today he only worked through training in the gym, alongside Raphael Varane.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo and Ramos, who both returned in part to training yesterday after respective minor issues, both took a full part in today’s session, indicating their availability for the Week 17 fixture.
