The images of the celebration of his winning goal against Levante, pushing Lucas Vazquez aside and denying the hands of almost all of his teammates left no doubt.

He is angry with the world and the goal didn't make him smile. On Sunday at Levante, he was decisive by scoring the winning goal from the penalty spot, due to the absence of Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema.

Bale is very angry, firstly, with his sporting situation. At the moment, he is a substitute and doesn't understand why he believes that his status and quality should be enough to see him start but it is Lucas and Vinicius who play.

Fully recovered from injury, he wants to be the leader of Real's project but for now, he isn't convincing Santiago Solari.

As a result, he feels ill-treated and is putting his numbers on the table to justify his anger because since his return, coming off the bench, he has already scored three goals against Espanyol, Atletico and Levante.

But the anger of Bale isn't only because of what is happening on the field of play.

The former Southampton man is also upset with his teammates, two of them in particular: Thibaut Courtois and Marcelo.The declarations of the duo in recent interviews in their respective countries weren't too favourable towards Bale.

During his interview, the goalkeeper revealed that Bale's dressing room nickname is 'the golfer' and that he doesn't go to team's dinners 'because he sleeps at that time' and that was considered a betrayal. Marcelo's jokes about the forward's problems with Spanish didn't sit well with Bale either, who feels like he is the easy target of his teammates and the press.

Bale also feels unfairly treated by the Spanish press, believing he is attacked and is disappointed that his successes at the club aren't taken into account.

One phrase in particular summed up how he felt about his treatment.

"If it was another player who had scored the overhead kick in the Champions League final to win no.13..."

All of that causes Bale to smile much less than usual and caused the reaction that we witnessed on Sunday after his goal.

It was a bad reaction that one of his best friends in the dressing room, Luka Modric, tried to play down by asking for calm and giving him a hug.

After reconsidering, the Welshman did leave the stadium in more of a relaxed mood but inside, he was still angry, above all because he isn't the leader of his Real Madrid team.

The next three games will be decisive for his morale. Bale feels that he has the potential to start in all three and hopes that the games against Barcelona and Ajax will help him end the criticism and recover his status as a star.

Of course, everything depends on Solari, who is very concerned about the anger of his players.

What's more, there are some within the club who do believe that the angrier Bale is then the better he performs.
