But the Hearts defender reckons Craig Levein's side will be making a massive mistake if they focus all their attention on the Tottenham superstar.
Scotland go into the match aiming to secure their first win of the World Cup qualifying campaign after opening up with two draws at home to Serbia and Macedonia at Hampden which has applied pressure on Levein.
Although sharing the spoils with a strong Wales side would not be the worst result, Webster and his team-mates are well aware not taking anything from the match – with an away tie with Belgium next Tuesday – will really leave their World Cup ambitions hanging by a thread.
In order to have any chance of taking anything from Friday's encounter, Scotland will have to keep one of the Barclays Premier League's top talents in the shape of Bale quiet, but Webster says he is just one of many in the Wales team who are worth watching.
He said: "Gareth Bale is an outstanding footballer, but Wales have quality through- out. You see Bale playing for Spurs in the English Premier League and he is a tremendous talent. He is fast, a powerful runner and he is scoring goals. He also has a terrific delivery and can hit a free-kick.
"But Wales have other top players who will be every bit as important for us to watch out for.
"They have Joe Allen, who moved to Liverpool during the summer, and Joe Ledley, who is one of Celtic's most important players. The pair of them play in the middle of the park.
"And they've got quality strikers playing in the Premier League.
"They will be a very good side but, on the other hand, I believe we have an exceptionally good team as well. I think, with the standard of players we have in our squad, it's going to be a competitive match."
Although Scotland go into this game under a bit more pressure than normal after taking just two points from their opening two home matches, it is even worse for Wales who were thrashed 6-1 by Serbia in their last match following a 2-0 defeat at home to Belgium.
"You are always under pressure, that's just the nature of the beast," said Webster, who has enjoyed a revival in his international career since moving to Hearts.
"You can look at it any way. They've had a very bad result and will be looking to put it right, but it might still be fresh in their memories so there could be apprehension going into the game.
"Anything you can exploit in the opposition, you will be looking to do. In any competition you are looking to win your home games. It's not easy playing against top-level opposition.
"Friday night is going to give us an opportunity to win the match and that's something we will be looking to do.
"The two games we played at home, the opposition knew they were going to be under pressure so they sat in and tried to hit us on the counter- attack. That's generally what you tend to find. It might be the same for us on Friday night.
"These things are dictated by how games are going. With any home team, the onus is on them to push and push to try and get themselves in front."
Webster expects a typical British-style match and he believes it should prove to be a highly-entertaining contest.
He said: "In terms of results, we were slightly disappointed. We created enough chances to win both games so it was frustrating from that point of view, especially with both those matches being at home.
"That's been and gone and it's about Wales and Belgium now. Because you have two British countries on Friday it's probably going to pan out to be tight affair. We have similar styles of playing football and a similar mentality.
"There will definitely be a lot of quality on show. Hopefully it's a good game of football."
For Webster, his return to the international fold after all his injury troubles is proving to be a second chance as a Scotland player.
And he added: "The longer it goes in terms of qualifying for a major tournament, the more you want it.
"From a personal point of view, I'm delighted to be back involved with the squad and contributing to some extent.
" This is what you want as a footballer, to be playing at the highest level and to test yourself against the best both at club or international level.
"When you get a bit older you tend to enjoy these things a bit more and certainly appreciate the position you're in. When you're injured there isn't much you can do.
"It's not like you're playing every week and not being selected so then you sometimes have to just switch off.
"You always feel an international return is a long way off. But there's always ambition. You want to get back playing football and enjoying it, then you hope one thing leads to another and you do get back involved.
"That's the situation I'm in at the minute and it's not something I take for granted. It's something I relish."
