Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale celebrated his 26th birthday yesterday with the club in the middle of their pre-season tour of Australia.
However, when a group of fans decided to sign Happy Birthday to the Welsh international following a training session, the former Spurs man didn’t seem very impressed.
The quirky Aussies burst into song whenever Bale approached to sign autographs.
Yet his facial expression remained the same despite the well wishes of the crowd:

Bale endured a tough season last year for Real Madrid, with the fans seemingly growing frustrated with their record signing.
Several sources even claimed there was a rift between the Welshman and Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, with Rafa Benitez replacing Carlo Ancelotti at the end of the last campaign, there is hope that Bale could turn around his fortunes next time out.
If only he would bloody smile every now and then!
