While Madridismo called for a penalty for Rulli's foul on Vinicius during Real Madrid-Real Sociedad (0-2), Gareth Bale seemed to be living in a different world.

Injured again, the Welshman left the Santiago Bernabeu before the game had even finished, as revealed by El Chiringuito, provoking anger among Madird fans. 

The images show 'The Cardiff Express' leaving Madrid's stadium in the 78th minute of the game and dirving away before Pardo added Sociedad's second goal. 

Bale, who injured his calf against Villarreal, will be out for between two and four weeks. It's the latest knock of an injuyr-plagued career since he joined Madrid in 2013. 

He has been criticised for his lack of integration -- he doesn't express himself in Spanish, at least not in public -- and he's failed to deliver since Cristiano Ronaldo left.

But what has irked this time is his lack of committment, abandoning the stadium in Chamartin with the game still in play and his team desperate for a way back into the match.
