FOOTBALL fans hilariously suggested Cristiano Ronaldo performed his trademark “siu” celebration while throwing a tantrum at the referee.

That included a bizarre goal which was allowed to stand despite smoke from the stands obstructing the keeper’s view as Ronaldo took his shot.
Nevertheless, despite scoring a brace in the opening 52 minutes, Ronaldo was left utterly raging just before the hour mark.
A decision made by the referee sparked the Portuguese legend to storm over to contest the call.
Strangely, he did so by sprinting towards the referee, stopping and flinging his arms behind him while bowing his head.
His protestations came to nothing as he ended up in a fit of furious disbelief after the ref wagged his finger to indicate he did not agree.
And the moment led many on social media to poke fun at the forward.
One person compared his run towards the ref to his well-known “siu” celebration, saying: “Bro did the suiii on the ref.”
Another added: “Drama king.. always shouting at referees.”

A third replied: “He just wants all the attention.”
While a fourth reacted: “Hollywood is his next stop .”
A host of famous faces played in the game on Friday night, with Ronaldo featuring alongside Aymeric Laporte, Marcelo Brozovic and Sadio Mane.
Both Kessie and Mahrez scored for the visitors, but could not prevent them from suffering a second league defeat of the season.
After the game, Ronaldo tweeted: “Very happy to score 2 more goals and specially to have helped the team in this important win!
“Our fans have been amazing in our home with their fantastic support! ”
The result took Al-Nassr above Al-Ahli and up to fifth in the Saudi Pro League, three points adrift of table toppers Al-Ittihad.
Al-Ahli drop to sixth but are still on the same points as Al-Nassr.
