Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale admits he may celebrate a winning goal against former club Tottenham in the Champions League.

The European champions were drawn alongside Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL in Group H, but will have to wait until next month for their meeting with the Premier League side.

Bale left Tottenham for Madrid in 2013 and the Wales international has won three Champions League crowns during his time in Spain.

The 28-year-old said he may struggle to control himself if he nets a late winner when he faces his former club.

“I scored against Spurs in a pre-season game a couple of years ago and I didn’t really celebrate then,” Bale told the Daily Mail.

“I suppose it depends on how you feel on the day. If it’s a 91st-minute winner, can you control yourself? That’s the question.”
