Gareth Bale: Real Madrid forward named Welsh player of the year

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been named Welsh player of the year at the Football Association of Wales (FAW) awards.

Bale won the award for a record fifth time and also won the players’ player and fans’ player of the year awards.

The 26-year-old had a difficult second season in Spain as Real Madrid lost their Champions League crown this year.

But his six goals in Euro 2016 qualifying have put Wales on the brink of their first major finals since 1958.

Bale scored the only goal in Wales’ 1-0 win over Belgium in Cardiff in June and scored another winner to secure a crucial 1-0 victory in Cyprus in September.
