Cristiano Ronaldo throws strop when Gareth Bale scores for Real Madrid

Gareth Bale netted twice in a win over Levante, but team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo didn't look too happy for him.

The Welshman and the Portuguese star are attempting to share the Madrid limelight, but the locals prefer megastar Ronaldo to the former Spurs man.

When Bale netted on Sunday, Ronaldo looked angry and the fact his team-mate had scored rather than himself, throwing his hand up in hanger when the ball hit the net after his own overhead kick was cleared off the line.

Bale, who has received plenty of criticism in recent weeks in the Spanish press, celebrated his first goal by putting his hands over his ears to show he isn't listening to the critics, before kicking the corner flag.

The second came thanks to a Ronaldo wayward shot being deflected in by Bale, something that won't have improved the former Manchester United man's mood.

It seemed more a case of Ronaldo's frustrations that he is not at the top of his game, rather than a rivalry with Bale, but the Portuguese star might want to work on his body language.
