Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has heaped praise on teammate Cristiano Ronaldo after victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Ronaldo struck twice in the 3-0 win.

"He is one of those players that the more you criticise him or the more you pressure him, the more he is motivated. His attitude and performances he is having with the team are amazing. Hopefully it will last until the end of the season because he is important to us," said Ramos.
