Watch as Cristiano Ronaldo is jeered by Newcastle fans after number of misses in warm-up ahead of Man Utd clash

CRISTIANO RONALDO was jeered by Newcastle fans after missing a number of shots in the warm-up to their clash with Manchester United.

The Portugal superstar was trying to get his shooting boots on minutes before kick-off but saw a number of efforts saved or go wide.


One free-kick from the edge of the box flew wide of the post to the amusements of the Toon Army behind it in the Leazes End.

Ronaldo, 36, was jeered and taunted but shrugged off the abuse.

One fan tweeted: "Ronaldo taking shots in the warm up. Every miss being cheered by the Leazes End."

Another laughed: "Huge cheers from the Leazes End ever time Cristiano Ronaldo blazes a strike wide in the pre-match warm-up.

"Hopefully a sign of things to come during the match. Though we're not that naive!"

Newcastle fans were silenced by the five-time Ballon d'Or winner in September when he scored twice at Old Trafford in his second debut for the club.
