Ronaldo celebrates first La Liga title

Cristiano Ronaldo was delighted to win his first La Liga title with Real Madrid following their 3-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday evening.
Though Ronaldo missed an early penalty in the 12th minute of the game, he later scored in the 50th minute to add to goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Mesut Ozil in the 16th and 20th minute respectively as Madrid ended Barcelona's three-year reign as Spanish champions.
Speaking to AS, Ronaldo said:
"It's my first league here in Spain and I'm very happy. It's mission accomplished and to win the league is great.
"[The players] are all very happy because it gives you a lot of joy to win the league after ten months of battling. Winning the league is very difficult."
Ronaldo has scored 44 league goals this season behind Lionel Messi who tops the score chart with 46 goals.
