There’s not much more to say about Cristiano Ronaldo, is there?

Already the highest scorer in Real Madrid history, anything he adds from here on out is just making his tally all the more difficult for the next superstar to reach.

The 32-year-old also holds the title as the all-time top scorer in the European cup and he took his tally to 109 goals with a brace against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Ronaldo had drawn blanks in his two previous matches but he wasn’t to go three matches without scoring.

He’s now scored two or more goals in six of his last seven Champions League games, an insane record that includes his brace in last season’s final against Juventus.

Zinedine Zidane must be over the moon to have him back following his five-match ban.

Ferdinand loved Ronaldo's brace

Ronaldo’s performance left everyone gushing on social media and among those to react was his former teammate at Manchester United, Rio Ferdinand.

The former centre-back won the tournament with Ronaldo in 2008 and he’s continued to support the Portuguese forward since he left Old Trafford for Spain a year later.

And he was utterly delighted to watch the four-time Ballon d’Or winner put Dortmund to the sword with a ruthless second half display.

“My man @Cristiano 🔥⚽️⚽️ 94 in 90 @ChampionsLeague .... absolute dirty!!!!! #VivaRonaldo,” Ferdinand wrote after Ronaldo made it 3-1 with a brilliant finish.

Ronaldo was frustrated after the win

Ronaldo’s record of 94 goals in 90 matches for Real Madrid in the Champions League is out of this world.

He’s averaged more than a goal per game in the toughest competition in football - just ridiculous.

Yet he didn’t seem in an overly joyous mood at full-time, saying he constantly has to prove himself in every match he plays.

"It seems that I have to keep showing exactly who I am in every match," Ronaldo said, per Marca.

"I am surprised by what the public thinks of me, my numbers speak for themselves, I am an exemplary professional and I always have a clear mind.

"The criticism is getting worse."

Ronaldo has his critics, yes, but there are so many more who admire his greatness.
