Both Ronaldo and fellow United star Bruno Fernandes ignored supporters at the end of the game and went straight down the tunnel at St James' Park.

"The best players in your team, it's devastating when they're showing that look and body language to the younger ones. They have to help them.

"At the end of the day, I love that lad [Ronaldo], he's the best I've ever seen in my life at times, but don't run off like that. I'm not having that."
