Cristiano Ronaldo ‘almost throws shirt out of stadium’ in passionate celebration after Man Utd winner vs Villarreal

CRISTIANO RONALDO netted a dramatic last-gasp winner as Manchester United squeezed past Villarreal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

The Portuguese rifled the ball past Geronimo Rulli in the fifth minute of stoppage time after exchanging passes with Jesse Lingard.

And the 36-year-old could barely hide his delight at having secured a crucial three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

As the Theatre of Dreams entered a state of delirium, Ronaldo wheeled away towards the corner flag to celebrate.

Fans have become used to the site of Ronaldo's chiselled torso down the years, and CR7 immediately took his shirt off once again after scoring his latest winner.

As adrenaline coursed through him, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner launched his famous No7 shirt 'into the sky' as he was chased by his team-mates.

If Ronaldo is known to be able to jump high, he can throw even higher – with an incredible image showing the lofty heights his jersey reached.

There may have been an element of releasing pent up frustration in the way he celebrated, with team-mate Alex Telles having revealed that Ronaldo had been grumbling due to lack of service.


The left-back told TNT Sports: "And five minutes before he was a little upset that we didn’t get any balls to him.

"I said ‘it will arrive, it will arrive, stay concentrated because it will arrive’. And as soon as I went off, Ronaldo doesn’t need much, right?"

Bruno Fernandes' echoed Telles' sentiment, admitting after the match: "We knew it with Cristiano, at any moment, every ball in the box could be a goal."

BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand revealed after the game: "He (Ronaldo) text me tonight saying 'I didn't play well but I knew I'd score'."
