VIDEO: Watch Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale run riot as Real Madrid win 7-1

first_img1 Zinedine Zidane hailed rampant forward Cristiano Ronaldo as “unique” after the Portuguese scored four goals in a 7-1 thrashing of Celta Vigo.Ronaldo also became the second highest top scorer in Primera Division history, his 252 goals in 228 matches taking him ahead of the late Athletic Bilbao striker Telmo Zarra, and now only trails Lionel Messi, on 304 strikes.The 31-year-old was booed at the start of the match by Madrid fans a week after criticising his team-mates following defeat to local rivals Atletico Madrid, but Zidane only had praise for the forward.“He is unique, only he can strike a ball like he does,” Zidane told a press conference.“I used to be good at taking shots but I took them from closer to the goal, and I never scored four goals in a game.“I care more about his performance (than the boos). Booing is part of football, and the fans were not just booing Cristiano. They are a demanding set of fans, they want more from their players, but that’s a good thing. And we all know how good Cristiano is. He is capable of scoring four goals,“It’s important that he has been scoring, with our Champions League match (with Roma) coming up next.” Ronaldo became the second highest top scorer in Primera Division history with 252 goals in 228 matches last_img
