Charlie Adam has tried to draw a line under his feud with Gareth Bale ahead of Scotland's World Cup qualifier against Wales on Friday.

Bale branded the Stoke midfielder a "coward" after he was injured by him for the second time during a pre-season friendly this summer.

The Wales winger was out for three months last season after the then Blackpool midfielder caught him with a heavy challenge in May 2011.

The pair were at loggerheads again in pre-season when Bale was the victim of another bad tackle from Adam, who was then with Liverpool.

"What happened in the past has happened," said Adam. "I apologised to him during the game, after a corner.

"I said to him I was sorry and thought everything was alright. I also apologised to the manager of Tottenham at half-time.

"Then all of a sudden I was being called a coward. That's football and it won't stop me tackling and trying to be the player I am. I hope it is done and dusted now."
