WELSH wizard Gareth Bale has a rather unusual decoration adorning his Christmas tree this year.
The Real Madrid forward celebrated his four goals in a 10-2 win over Rayo Vallecano by planting the La Liga match ball on top of his tree.
The Welsh star tweeted photos of his new festive fairy following the Bernabeu victory.
Bale, 26, who has scored six times in the last four games, helped Rafa Benitez’s side move within two points of table-topping Barcelona.
The in-form forward has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the last few weeks.
