But I'm sure Scotland manager Gordon Strachan will have looked around his own group of players this week and will want to focus on trying to provide them with the best platform to shine at Hampden, rather than overdo it with making precautions for just one opposing player.
Like everyone else, I've been highly impressed with Bale this season. He has been the outstanding performer in the Barclays Premier League.
However, Gordon will be aiming to mark his first game as Dark Blues boss at the National Stadium with a good display.
He has promised to be as positive as he can and get the best out of our best players and that might just mean taking the game to Wales.
We have Steven Fletcher who has shown he can score goals regularly in the English top flight, Shaun Maloney has been great for Wigan and Robert Snodgrass has been in fine form for Norwich. The three of them like to get the ball down.
