Gareth Bale tipped club legend Ally McCoist’s shock Rangers transfer because Scotland has ‘the best golf courses’

FOR a golf freak like Gareth Bale, Scotland is known for its links. So how about this one – the Welsh legend swapping the Ranges for Rangers?

The Real Madrid outsider, who has reportedly been targeted by Spurs, Newcastle, Southampton Cardiff City and the MLS, needs a big chunk of regular football to stay fit for this winter’s World Cup.

Given the number of scenic golf courses in the country, Gareth Bale would certainly be smiling from ear to ear if he walked into a club north of the border

And Ibrox legend Ally McCoist has set a flagpole for the Scottish giants to outdo Bale’s bevy of other admirers with a summer deal – because of Scotland’s fantastic golf courses.

There is still a long way to go before the 32-year-old makes a decision – not least because he will only leave Real after his contract expires on June 30th.

But former Tartan Army poacher McCoist has campaigned hard for his old club.

He told talkSPORT: “If I were Rangers I would offer him something too.

‘Listen, he’s at a point in his life where he wants to enjoy himself. We all know he’s a big golf fan, we have the best golf courses.

“I would bring him here and say, ‘Look, have a year up here. The fans are going to love him, absolutely love him.’

Bale’s former teams Tottenham and Southampton are said to be monitoring his situation.

And moneybags Newcastle are the other Premier League club the 103 cap star has talked about to make a mark and show they’re still a top player in domestic football.

But McCoist thinks it might be worth flapping on Bale’s putter landing north of the border or across the pond.

The 59-year-old said: “‘He’s on stage now, would America be an option?

“It looks like he wants to enjoy the last two or three years of his playing career.

“And that’s what I want. I don’t want him to fizzle out as a supporting actor for half an hour.”

The only certainty seems that Bale isn’t quite ready for the 19th hole.

After his deflected free-kick sank Ukraine in the play-off and sent Wales to the World Cup for the first time since 1958, he confirmed he would not give up.
