The 23-year-old, who became a father to a baby girl last October, has admitted that his dad's scrutiny urges him to continue proving him wrong.
"He always told me off if I did something wrong," Bale told Esquire magazine. "Even now he still does it.
"But he makes me get better and I kind of want to keep proving him wrong to keep him quiet. He's always got something to say."
Bale has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.
