Ronaldo Rates Zidane's First Full Season As Real Boss

Ronaldo has been rested for various games and substituted in several by Zinedine Zidane this season, but many have pointed to this as the reason for his clinical end to the campaign, with another brace for Madrid in Wednesday's 4-1 win at Celta Vigo.

Real Madrid's Toni Kroos in action with Celta Vigo's Hugo Mallo.

Ronaldo opened his league tally for United in 2003.

It was Ronaldo's 13th goal in his last eight matches, and 24th in league.

Ronaldo batted back a question from a local TV reporter who wondered how he had felt after missing a late chance for a hat trick.

"But I am doing well and helping the team with goals at the moment, so I am happy". "It is not usual for me to have a miss like that, but it can happen to human beings who can make mistakes too".

Ronaldo hadn't played an away match in the league since March, a run of four straight games.

Celta's lone goal was scored by John Guidetti with a shot from outside the area in the 69th, just a minute before Karim Benzema restored Madrid's two-goal lead from close range after a left-flank cross by Marcelo.

Madrid last won a double in 2014, but it was with the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

Minutes later, Iago Aspas missed twice for Celta within 60 seconds and Real Madrid got lucky in the 38th minute when the referee missed a clear hand ball by Raphael Varane on the edge of the 18-yard box.

The game had been due to be played in February, but had was postponed after hurricane force winds had blown the roof off Celta's Balaidos Stadium.

Los Blancos will win La Liga if they are victorious against mid-table Malaga in their final game of the season on Sunday (May 21).

If Madrid fetch a high transfer fee for a couple of those players this summer, Zidane again can be applauded for trusting his subs and building up their market value, all while leading Madrid to one of its best seasons in team history.
