Scott McTominay was sensationally spotted shouting "siuuu" as Cristiano Ronaldo finally scored his first goal of the season for Manchester United.
Bouncing back from a bleak showing against Real Sociedad last Thursday (September 8) the Red Devils claimed the first win of their Europa League campaign, with first-half goals from Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo enough to see off Moldovan champions Sheriff Tiraspol.
Sancho's dazzling feet inside the area handed Erik ten Hag the perfect start inside the opening 17 minutes as the former Borussia Dortmund man worked the ball onto his left foot before firing home a delicious strike to put United nerves immediately at ease.

And when Diogo Dalot was felled in the area, as a result of a late challenge from Patrick Kpozo, the responsibility of the 12-yard spot-kick was laid on the head of compatriot Ronaldo.
Confidently smashing the ball down the middle of the goal, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner then raced to the corner flag to perform his trademark celebration and the 10,400-capacity crowd couldn't help but join in with the screams of "siuuu".
Though the supporters inside Stadionul Zimbru, Sheriff are playing their European home matches at the Moldovan national stadium due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, weren't the only ones partaking in Ronaldo's common catchphrase.

United midfielder Scott McTominay was caught shouting "siuuu" in the team huddle following the goal, in one of his final actions before being replaced at half-time by £70million signing Casemiro.
The penalty was clearly a huge weight off the shoulders of Ronaldo. Portugal's record goalscorer is yet to find the net for Man Utd in the Premier League this season and has started just one match in the top-flight – the 4-0 drubbing at Brentford.
New boss Erik ten Hag has made no secret of his desire to continue with a high-pressing front three, a system ill-suited to Ronaldo, with preferred forward Marcus Rashford rattling in three goals in six matches.
