Cristiano Ronaldo was handed a yellow card for his antics by referee Anthony Taylor after the Manchester United star was left frustrated by his team’s performance on Sunday. The 36-year-old was involved in a scuffle with young Curtis Jones, expressing his anger at decisions not going in his favour. In first-half stoppage time and with the score at 3-0, Ronaldo was denied by Alisson before the 20-year-old midfielder won a challenge with the Portuguese.

Livid, Ronaldo fouled Jones, who fell on the pitch, only to be kicked out by the frustrated Manchester United star who couldn’t bear seeing his team being thrashed in the Premier League derby. Jones was clearly annoyed by his opponents’ behaviour while Liverpool players, including defenders Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson, surrounded Ronaldo, who was shown the yellow card by referee Anthony Taylor.

They deserve better than this, much better, and it’s up to us to deliver. The time is now!”
