Five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo first hit the celebration in Real Madrid’s Pre-season game against Chelsea in 2013, and since then, it became his trademark.
From memories of nights of Champions League hat-tricks, to scoring worldies on the biggest stage, there is little doubt that every football viewer at a certain time, hit the celebration in pure joy, and the Rangers team followed suit.
Their joy, however was short-lived, as goals from Oluwaseun Ogunribide and returning striker, Sikiru Alimi sealed all three points for Ijaball’s side.
