Gareth Bale left out of squad despite return to training and in fight to ever play again for Real Madrid

GARETH BALE has been left out of Real Madrid's squad for their LaLiga clash with Cadiz tomorrow.

The Welshman returned to training this week, having shaken off a recent back injury.

But he won't be back in action tomorrow, after being snubbed from Carlo Ancelotti's matchday squad.

Bale, 32, will leave Madrid at the end of the season following the expiry of his £600,000-a-week contract.

He will only have two more opportunities to ever add to his 258 Madrid appearances and play for the Spanish giants again.

Ancelotti's men host Real Betis next weekend in their final LaLiga match of the season.
