Gareth Bale says that his father Frank tells him off like he used to do when the Tottenham Hotspur star was younger.

Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale has revealed that his father Frank still tells him off like he did when the Welsh winger was a youngster.

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.
