The Welshman, who has been under fire for some poor performances and lazy attitude of late, struck twice in the first half to wrap up the points at the Bernabeu.

First, Bale struck a sweet right-footed volley after some poor Levante defending, and clearly celebrated in response to his critics by covering his ears.

Secondly, the 25-year-old deflected in a Cristiano Ronaldo shot, in what will have to go down as his goal as he got the final touch on its way in.

Bale has been strongly linked with Manchester United after rumours he could be open to quitting Real this summer, but will this brace buy him some time in Spain?
