Real Madrid’s Forward Gareth Bale celebration after scoring the 3rd goal against Atletico de Madrid was not well received by La Liga authorities.
Bale entered the game as substitute and at the 73th minute he scored. It was then reported “a gesture of possible obscene and derogatory meaning” during his goal celebration.

“In the 73rd minute of the game, after scoring his team’s third goal, Real Madrid player Gareth Bale, who had been booed by the local fans, celebrated by raising his right hand close to his head, in a provocative gesture to the supporters, then in a gesture of possible obscene and derogatory meaning doubled his arm while cutting across the middle of it with his other hand,” the La Liga statement read.
