Humble Bale is "delighted"

After being named Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association, Gareth Bale has said it's a "huge honour".

"It means a lot to win this award when you consider the number of players that have been outstanding for their clubs in the Barclays Premier League this season.

"I've been very fortunate to be playing in such a fantastic team and I owe a lot to my team-mates and, obviously, the manager who has shown such faith in me."This award has been won in the past by some of the greatest names in football and I consider it a privilege that the FWA have selected me to be named alongside them."
