It came amid uncertainty over his Old Trafford future with Ronaldo wanting out of the club as United have no Champions League football this season.   

The 37-year-old wasn’t the only player to make an early departure on Sunday and Ten Hag isn’t impressed.

Speaking about the incident, Ten Hag told AD: ‘I certainly don’t condone this. This is unacceptable. For everyone. We are a team and you have to stay until the end.’ 

Ronaldo was replaced at the break by Amad Diallo, who gave United the lead with a close-range rebound in the 48th minute.

But Rayo Vallecano drew level through Alvaro Garcia Rivera’s finish nine minutes later.
