Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano rapped Cristiano Ronaldo over his goal celebration last night. Ronaldo was barracked by Almeria's fans throughout the 2-1 win and when he scored the equaliser the Real ace drew a furious response from the home support for cupping his ear.

"Cristiano must be controlled because we cannot ask the fans of Almería," said Valdano.

However, he did add: "This is a team with a high degree of professional responsibility. This season we cannot complain about the behavior and attitude."
