La Liga: Real Madrid"s Gareth Bale banned for two games

Madrid: The Spanish football federation yesterday banned Real Madrid star Gareth Bale for two matches for his red card against Las Palmas this week.

Bale was also fined 600 euros ($634) after he was ordered off for twice kicking out at Jonathan Viera and then pushing the Las Palmas midfielder to the ground during the 3-3 draw on Wednesday. Bale said after he did not accept he deserved the red card — his first since joining Madrid in 2013. Bale repeatedly swiped at Viera as the Las Palmas midfielder surged away. Viera reacted with a push after being awarded a foul. Bale then shoved Viera in front of referee who reported the Wales forward for violent conduct.
