Gary Neville has revealed he is annoyed with Cristiano Ronaldo's antics after Manchester United's draw with Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

Ronaldo was a surprising omission from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting side at Old Trafford, despite gifting United their first Champions League win this season midweek.

However, after being introduced as a substitute just past the hour mark, Ronaldo failed to find the net against the Toffees.

And Neville was less than impressed with Ronaldo reaction to being left on the bench, and then again full-time.

The Red Devils icon believes that Ronaldo is pilling unnecessary pressure onto the Norwegian's shoulders.

"I watched the game and I watched him walk off. I can't say I liked it," Neville told Sky Sports.

"Is Cristiano upset when he doesn't play? Yes. Is Cristiano upset when he doesn't score?

"Yes. Is Cristiano annoyed as hell when the team don't win? Of course. We know those things. He doesn't have to prove that.

"He walks off the pitch, muttering to himself, which throws questions up in the air. What is he saying? Who is he annoyed with? It can only come back to the manager.

"Cristiano is smart enough to know actions like that will bring real pressure on the manager – more than he is already under.

“It is what it is, but I think that is something that has to be managed in the next couple of months.

"Cristiano is not always going to score, and he maybe can't play every game.

"But if he's going to walk off like that, it's going to put immense pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer."
