"No way!" the Reds boss told Manchester United Radio when asked if money would change hands should Ronaldo surpass George Best's 32-goals record. "Being a Scot, I value my money."
Ronaldo took his season tally to 25 with a double against Tottenham last weekend, although neither goal is likely to feature in his career highlights reel. Not that his manager cared…
"The boy has been fantastic recently," Sir Alex said. "Against Spurs he showed great composure in taking his penalty kick at what was an important time in the game. His second goal was a goalkeeping mistake but if you don't shoot you don't score. He was rewarded for that mentality."
