Ronaldo, who failed to score as Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1, talked about his time at Madrid in the past tense after the game, casting doubt on his future. 

Bale, meanwhile, who scored twice after coming on as a second half substitute, admitted to English television that he may have to leave if he's not handed more regular match action. 

"They were untimely remarks [from Ronaldo], ones which weren't relevant at that moment, which was a moment for Real Madrid and the players," Del Bosque said as he launched his own campus.

"But Real Madrid is more important than any player, so it didn't tarnish the celebrations. It was the same with [Gareth] Bale, it wasn't very generous for the teammates."

Ronaldo's thought to want a bigger deal to keep him in line with the likes of Neymar and Lionel Messi while Bale just wants to play more often. 

The Welsh winger has been linked with a return to the Premier League, with Manchester United and former club Tottenham Hotspur both reported to be keen.
