Rio Ferdinand tries to crawl inside Cristiano Ronaldo as he posts video of himself celebrating his idol’s penalty

We get it Rio, you know CR7!

Rio Ferdinand must have been insufferable to work with last night.

The former Manchester United defender – once a teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo – was on duty for BT Sport during the Champions League final.

And, as soon as it became clear than Ronny had the chance to win the game with the decisive penalty kick in the shootout, Rio went into full fan-boy mode.

Fellow pundit Steve McManaman also celebrated as Ronny successfully converted, but he has an excuse.

Macca used to play for Real, but even he didn’t go off on one like a kid who had ODed on Haribo.

And Rio wasn’t finished there with his CR7 worship.

He posted the video to his Instagram account on Sunday afternoon, along with a long testimonial reminding us again that he is Ronny’s mate and that the Portuguese icon in such a terrific bloke.
