New angle of Cristiano Ronaldo brutally snubbing Gary Neville shows how painfully awkward it was

New angle of Cristiano Ronaldo brutally snubbing Gary Neville shows how painfully awkward it was

Ronaldo ignored Neville ahead of United's 1-0 win over West Ham.

A new angle has emerged of Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo brutally snubbing Gary Neville ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against West Ham.

United moved back up to fifth with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game to secure a crucial victory for Erik ten Hag's side in their pursuit of a top-four spot.

United forward Ronaldo started for the second consecutive match after returning to the fold against Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner had missed United's 1-1 draw with Chelsea earlier this month after being banished from the first-team squad for refusing to come on as a substitute against Tottenham.

After the draw with Chelsea, former United defender Neville claimed it was time for the Premier League club to 'end their relationship' with Ronaldo as early as the January transfer window.

Ronaldo clearly took exception to Neville's comments, very publicly snubbing him ahead of the win over West Ham.

As the United players came out to warm up at Old Trafford before kick-off, the team passed the Sky Sports pundits who were set up just outside the tunnel.

Ronaldo embraced his former United teammate Louis Saha and shook hands with Jamie Redknapp before completely ignoring Neville.

A new angle showing the awkward interaction in its entirety has now emerged. Check it out below.

It is not the first time that Ronaldo has brutally snubbed a Sky Sports pundit on live television this season.

Jamie Carragher was ignored by Ronaldo ahead of United's 2-1 win over Liverpool in August after criticising the Portuguese superstar.

Ronaldo's latest snub has split opinion on social media, with some supporting the 37-year-old and others branding his behaviour childish.

"Gary Neville talking down to the best player in the world, utter disrespect, especially as Ronaldo bleeds for the club, Fergie knows his worth," posted one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "The cheek of Neville thinking he was getting a handshake."

While a third commented: "Baby Ronaldo", followed by the crying-laughing emoji.

United and Ronaldo return to action against Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Ten Hag's side can still top their group and avoid a potentially tricky tie in the first knockout stage if they win by two goals or more in Spain.
