Cristiano Ronaldo was booked for having a yet another tantrum during a match for Al Nassr.
The 37-year-old was playing for the Saudi Arabian giants in a clash with Abha in the King Cup Of Champions quarter-final fixture when when he rubbed the referee up the wrong way.
While Al-Nassr were already 2-0 up, Ronaldo was leading a counter attack from his own half when he looked to have broken clear of the last line of defence.
However, the man in the middle had other ideas as he blew the whistle for the half-time break, much to Ronaldo‘s frustration.
The Portuguese star expressed his annoyance at the decision by picking up the ball and kicking it away. Ronaldo also threw his hands in the air as he made his way off the pitch.
But the referee wasn’t going to let him get away with it that easily, brandishing a yellow card as he departed.
Ronaldo’s booking didn’t do too much to disrupt Al Nassr, however, with the Saudi side grabbing a third goal shortly after the half-time break as they went on to win 3-1.
Since joining Al-Nassr, Ronaldo has certainly shone after bagging eight goals in just seven Saudi Pro League fixtures this term.

As it stands, they sit second in the table with 46 points from 20 games, just one point behind league leaders Al-Itihad.
However, this is the second tantrum he’s had in a week having booted some bottles and throwing his captain’s armband to the ground during a defeat to Al-Ittihad last Thursday.
