"Like Dracula on a plate of liver!"

Commentating on Real Madrid's triumph over Real Sociedad for US TV, Ray Hudson reacted to Gareth Bale's winner in his own inimitable style.


Gareth Bale's late header at Real Sociedad handed Real Madrid a vital victory in the LaLiga title race on Saturday afternoon - and sent colourful ESPN co-commentator Ray Hudson into a frenzy of ecstasy.

English former footballer Hudson is well known for his animated style and use of absurd metaphors - and didn't disappoint as the Welshman met Lucas Vázquez's cross to ensure a 10th straight league win for Real.

"Magnificent from Gareth Bale, who feasts on this one like Dracula on a plate of liver!" wailed Hudson as he reacted to the strike, Bale's 19th in the Spanish top flight this term.

While the likelihood of vampires having a penchant for liver-based dishes remains open to some debate, AS English applaud's Hudson's imagination.
