Watch: Gareth Bale sees outrageous goal ruled out by VAR for handball


Gareth Bale scored an outrageous solo goal for Real Madrid in their Champions League group stage defeat to PSG – only to see the effort ruled out by VAR for handball.

Having been expected to leave the Bernabeu this summer following a public fall out with manager Zinedine Zidane, Bale has found himself at the centre of Real’s plans after a move failed to materialise.

The former Spurs man has scored twice in three La Liga starts and also started their opening Champions League fixture at PSG.

Real were put to the sword, losing 3-0, with Angel Di Maria scoring twice against his former club and Thomas Meunier adding a late third.

Bale looked to have given Los Blancos hope with a stunning goal in the second half, only for VAR to spot a handball in the build up.
