Cristiano Ronaldo ignores Gary Neville live on Super Sunday
Cristiano Ronaldo ignored Gary Neville as he made a brief appearance on Sky Sports' Super Sunday.
Ronaldo was coming out to warm up ahead of Manchester United's game against West Ham at Old Trafford and as he began to run past the pundits, stopped to say hello.
Among those working were Ronaldo's former teammate Louis Saha, Jamie Redknapp and another one of his old pals, Neville.
But despite saying hello to Saha and Redknapp, the 37-year-old had no time for saying hello to Neville as he walked straight past him to start his warm-up.
"We're off the Christmas card list now aren't we?" joked Neville.

It's the second time this season Ronaldo has blanked a member of Sky Sports' punditry team as he ignored Jamie Carragher when saying hello to Roy Keane before United's win against Liverpool in August.
Ronaldo has been named in the starting line-up alongside Harry Maguire for Sunday's clash after he scored in the Europa League win against Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday night.

The forward returned to the match-day squad after he was left out of the trip to Chelsea as punishment for his behaviour in the game against Tottenham.
During the game Ronaldo refused to come on as a substitute before walking down the tunnel in the 86th minute and leaving the stadium early.
United boss Erik ten Hag took action by banishing him from first team training before reintroducing him to the squad ahead of their game against Sheriff.
A win for the Red Devils will see them move to within a point of the Champions League places in their final home game before the winter break for the World Cup.
