West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison says he's involved in football because of Ronaldo.

The World Cup’s all-time leading goalscorer will be guest of honour at the ­Emirates today for Scotland's friendly against Scotland.

Ronaldo piled on the pounds as he battled ­mental problems and injuries but Morrison joked: “Maybe I’ll even get to have a burger with him!”.

“Seriously, as a little kid I remember watching them and aspiring to be like them. My earliest real memory is the 98 World Cup in France, the team with Ronaldo – that was the one for me.

“He’s been such a great ­player, it would be fantastic to see him. He’s the leading scorer of all time in World Cup finals and you can’t take that away.”
