CRISTIANO RONALDO made headlines last night with his latest tantrum against Brentford.
The superstar, now 36, was warned after his return to Old Trafford last summer that he can’t expect to play every game.
Ronaldo put his hands on his hips and shuffled behind replaced with 20 minutes to play on Wednesday night – just seconds after he made one a skill for United’s second goal.
Ronaldo was furious that he was the victim of a double change from caretaker manager Rangnick – even though it was his first game since the injury.
The German boss tried to hug the Portuguese legend as he left but Ron extended his arms at his side and looked straight ahead as he sat on the steps near the dunes rather than right bench.
Rangnick then spoke and that finally seemed to cool as he watched United witness a comfortable victory.
CR7 doesn’t like to miss minutes, especially when he feels he has a goal.

These are the five times Ronaldo stumbled because he couldn’t play the full 90 minutes.
Levante 2 Real Madrid 2, February 2018
With Real Madrid leading 2-1, Zinedine Zidane felt the game was safe enough to score Ronaldo.
But this decision backfired when Real equalized and Ronaldo started.
He was clearly annoyed at being withdrawn and he was only made angrier when a cameraman zoomed in on his pain while on the bench.
The Portuguese insisted, telling camerman: “There’s no reason (to focus on him). Look at the game, point the camera at the game.”
Las Palmas 2 Real Madrid 2, September 2016
The match against Levante is not the first time that Ronaldo and Zidane’s relationship has shown signs of strain.
Likewise, on this occasion, Zidane replaced Ronaldo and the striker responded by walking past his manager without even looking at him.
Ronaldo then continued to sulk on the bench as he watched Las Palmas equalize.
Juventus 1 AC Milan 0, November 2019
Zidane is not the only coach who has suffered from Ronaldo’s wrath.
During his first season at Juventus, Ronaldo reacted to his disqualification against AC Milan by going straight down the tunnel after exchanging tense words with Maurizio Sarri.
The striker was perhaps surprised to be substituted as early as 55 minutes – replaced by Paulo Dybala, who scored the winning goal.
Even so, Ronaldo’s mood remained unchanged and he is said to have left the stadium before the match ended.
Inter Milan 1 Juventus 2, February 2021
Sarri’s successor at Juventus, Andrea Pirlo, also received the same treatment from Ronaldo.
However, he was arguably more deserving as he did what Ronaldo might consider a mortal sin – knocking him down when he scored a hat-trick.
Juventus fell behind in a crucial title clash with Ronaldo scoring twice to give his team the lead and ultimately three points.
So when Pirlo kicked him off the field in favor of Alvaro Morata, Ronaldo cut a staggering number.
He trudged off the field and shook his head before firing a few choice words at his manager.
Juventus 1 Roma 3, August 2020
This is a rare match that Ronaldo has completely missed, and he obviously smoked when he looked from the stands.
He also had no reason to do so, as he received his second Serie A medal after the match ended.
His chances of winning the golden boot were practically improbable at that stage, as Ciro Immobile scored twice on the final day to finish with 36 goals – five more than Ronaldo.
CR7 is clearly not used to missing such prestigious matches, and so Solskjaer must be very careful when deciding to let him go.
