Cristiano Ronaldo shows off shredded abs as he strips down to just his pants in defiant message to Man Utd boss Rangnick

CRISTIANO RONALDO proved he is still in pristine shape as he showed off his abs after stripping down to just his pants.

The 36-year-old has always defied age and continued to perform at the highest level.

And judging by his recent Instagram post that will not be changing anytime soon.

Many have doubted whether veteran Portuguese legend Ronaldo will be able to fit into new Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick’s style.

The German coach took charge of the Red Devils last week and will look to implement his famous 'gegenpress' at Old Trafford.

His new side already seem to be adapting as they produced an impressive post-Sir Alex Ferguson record stat in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last Sunday.

Rangnick also praised Ronaldo’s work-rate off the ball against the Eagles.

His former United team-mate Ferdinand has no doubts boss Rangnick will work around main man Ronaldo.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: “He’ll be adapting his tactics to suit a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo. 

“Don’t forget that at Schalke he had another superstar in Raul, who was another ageing superstar, and he adapted things to make sure he could accommodate a player of that calibre and class.”

Ferdinand added: “We watched the game at the weekend and there was a big difference in the way the team was set-up – the shape, the way they pressed.

“I think Ronaldo will buy into that completely as he wants to be successful.

“He’ll pick his punches as and when to go and work around someone like him.

“When you are scoring the goals that he does then you have to sometimes change and adapt for someone like that.”
