Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has opened up about club superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's 'annoying' antics when he doesn't score.
The Portuguese was reportedly annoyed with Isco after the Spaniard did not celebrate with him after he scoring off his assist in the recent 3-0 win over Las Palmas.
During an interview on Spanish radio show El Larguero, Ramos addressed his teammates' antics and opened up about how they are being seen by the rest of the squad.
"Well, if we're going to get into whether or not it's something that's annoying, I guess at the end of the day, it doesn't help the interests of the team, right?" Ramos said, as quoted by AS, when asked about Ronaldo's gestures.
"All of the squad probably have their own opinion, maybe some are more affected by it than others, but we're not going to change the way Cris is at this stage. He's always been the same, so it doesn't surprise me that even though we won 3-0, he had that look on his face because he didn't score."
When asked if Ronaldo's gestures could be seen as lack of respect for his teammates, Ramos admitted there is some truth in the suggestion but insisted he personally does not have a problem with them.
"It could be that it's not the best way to go about things, and, yeah, maybe there are some who don't like that type of gesture but speaking for me personally, to be honest I don't care if Cris scores, or if Isco scores, or if Keylor or Kiko Casilla come up and score with a header. The satisfaction is the same for me as if I'd scored it myself," he added.
"Obviously, Cris has a different role, he's playing for the Golden Boot, for the Ballon d'Or and a lot of individual titles that are influenced by the goals he scores and that sort of thing, but I think that, above all, you can't hold it against him because he gives the team so much that it's difficult to get annoyed with him over this gesture or that…"
Ronaldo has scored only once in La Liga so far this season, drawing blanks in six of the past seven games after missing the first four game weeks due to suspension.
