Gareth Bale ruled out of qualifiers

The Football Association of Wales can confirm that Gareth Bale will miss the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Republic of Ireland.

Bale – who missed Real Madrid’s game against Espanyol on Sunday – arrived with the rest of the Wales squad on Sunday and attended Monday’s annual FAW Awards dinner at the team headquarters in Cardiff.

But following dialogue with Real Madrid, Bale was sent for a scan and results confirmed that he wouldn’t be fit to feature.

Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw will now join up with the rest of the squad later today.
