Al-Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo clashed with Al-Hilal defender Ali Al-Bulayhi during Friday night’s Saudi Pro League fixture.
Ronaldo was less than impressed with what he deemed to be playacting from Al-Bulayhi and pretended that he couldn’t hear as his opponent raged at him.
Former Liverpool and Bayern Munich winger Sadio Mane, one of Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr team-mates, was also seen sarcastically clapping Al-Bulayhi.
Al-Bulayhi was later sent off in the closing stages of the game after receiving two yellow cards.
However, Ronaldo was left hugely frustrated as Al-Nassr suffered a 3-0 defeat away to their title rivals.

The result means that Al-Hilal are now seven points clear at the top of the table.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic had put Al-Hilal in the lead, with former Newcastle and Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic then proceeding to score a brace.
At half time, with the game still goalless, Ronaldo sarcastically blew kisses towards Al-Hilal fans who taunted him with chants of ‘Messi’.
Ronaldo and Al-Nassr will hope to bounce back in their next league game at home to Al-Riyadh. Prior to that they will face Maldivian side Istiklol in the AFC Champions League.
So far this season Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in 20 games for Al-Nassr across all competitions, while he has provided nine assists.
