After years of a fractured relationship, Gareth Bale has finally received a warm reception from Real Madrid fans – as they cheered his name during their title parade at the Bernabeu.
Los Blancos returned to their home stadium to celebrate their recent Champions League success over Liverpool – as they won the competition for a 14th time.
Despite playing less than ten minutes of the European campaign, Madrid fans made their appreciation for the Welshman known ahead of his exit from the club this summer.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side headed back to Spain to celebrate the 1-0 win over Liverpool with their faithful fans – which involved the Madrid players being announced one-by-one as they appeared in front of the home crowd.
When Bale’s name was announced, Madrid fans were quick to applaud the Wales international – a stark contrast from the years of whistling and jeering that he’s endured in Spain.
Later in the celebrations, the 32-year-old was parading around with his family before the home crowd struck up a ‘Bale’ chant – leading the Welshman to run over and take pictures with the cheering fans.
The passionate Madristas and the soon-to-be leaving star were able to set aside their differences as the Welshman received a warming send-off – with Bale’s contract coming to an end in summer.

It was only back in April that Bale was hounded by Madrid fans after he came on as a substitute in their 2-0 win over Getafe in La Liga.
Bale’s team-mate Casemiro jumped to the Welshman’s defence by saying: ‘We’re all on the same side, we have to support him. It’s never nice to hear a team-mate being whistled by our fans. I heard Bale being whistled the other day and I didn’t like that.’
The five-time Champions League winner was seen laughing off the boos that were ringing around the stadium following his introduction.
