Gareth Bale breaks Gary Linekar’s La Liga scoring record for a British player

REAL Madrid forward Gareth Bale has broken Gary Linekar’s scoring record for the most goals scored by a British player in Spain’s La Liga.

The Welshman’s goal in Real’s 4-0 victory over Sevilla took his tally to 43 goals in 76 games, one more than former England striker Linekar’s record of 42 goals in 103 games for Barcelona between 1986 and 1989.

“I’m very happy. This new record gives me joy and now the important thing is to improve,” Bale said. Kickoff.com
