Watch furious Cristiano Ronaldo throw giant strops and kick bottles after losing Premier League in Saudi Arabia

ANGRY Cristiano Ronaldo blew up a few bottles in anger after losing his first league game in Saudi Arabia.

Ronaldo applauded his fans but then stormed off the pitch, throwing his arms in the air and kicking a cluster of plastic water bottles when a team-mate tried unsuccessfully to calm him down.

The loss was his first in the Saudi Pro League and also saw Al-Nassr slip to second place, a point behind Al-Ittihad.

The Portuguese, who is on a whopping £173million-a-year deal, scored eight goals in four games in February and was crowned player of the month.

But he failed to break the deadlock tonight.

Brazilian striker Romarinho scored the only goal of the game from inside the box in the 80th minute to seal the win.

That came just ten minutes after he cleared a volley off the line.

Ronaldo was caught on camera with his hands on his hips looking very frustrated with his teammates after the goal.

The Real Madrid ex-man got his only shot on goal in added time but failed to really test the Al-Ittihad goalkeeper.

And he angrily walked down the tunnel and continued gesturing angrily.

Al-Ittihad inflicted Ronaldo’s first defeat in the Middle East since his shock transfer in January – knocking Al-Nassr out of the Saudi Super Cup.

And home side fans took great delight in mocking the five-time Ballon d’Or winner ahead of kick-off in tonight’s league game.

They chanted Lionel Messi’s name again and even urged their club to buy Ronaldo’s great rival – leading to a wry smile from the Al-Nassr captain.
