Gareth Bale has trolled Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane after again being left out of the Los Blancos starting XI.
The Welshman watched on from the stands as Madrid won for a ninth straight game to close to within three points of the La Liga title.
But Bale was at least able to see the funny side of things as he sat in the stands at Granada.
Goals from Ferland Mendy and Karim Benzema put Madrid 2-0 ahead before Machis pulled one back for the hosts.
Bale was also left out of Los Blancos' last win against Alaves, a game in which he used his face mask to pretend he was having a nap.
Now at Granada the 30-year-old pretended to be using binoculars in the stands as he made use of some tape and his cupped hand.
Spanish fans didn't waste any time in mocking Bale for his interests, claiming he was eyeing up the nearest golf course.
The former Tottenham man may only have a handfull of games remaining in his seven-year Madrid career.
He struggled for game time under Zidane during his first stint at the Bernabeu and was constantly linked with a departure.
Nevertheless he remained in the Spanish capital despite coming close to joining a Chinese side last summer.
Bale's £350,000-a-week wages have long made finding a buyer a problem but should he leave Los Blancos the Premier League has long been touted as his destination.
Since making a world record move from Tottenham in 2013 the Welshman has only won the one La Liga title, but that could soon become two.
It is in Europe where he has made his name though, scoring goals in two of Madrid's four recent Champions League triumphs.
