Ramos was cautioned for his goal celebration during Spain’s 2-1 win over Romania

The Real Madrid captain was showing a glass wearing gesture which infuriated the fans – Ramos revealed the celebration was for his nephew and said the referee later apologized

Sergio Ramos has explained the reason behind his goal celebration during their 2-1 win in the Euro 2020 qualifier.

The Real Madrid captain converted a penalty after Dani Ceballos was fouled but was shown a yellow card for his celebration.

Ramos made a gesture on one of the TV cameras in which he mimicked wearing glasses but the celebration provoked the home fans.

“The referee thought I was gesturing to the stands.” The former Sevilla defender added that the referee apologized to him at half-time after he had understood the reason for his celebration.

Ramos scored his 21st international goal in his 166th cap for Spain and no other player has scored more goals than the center-back since the end of the last World Cup.

Dortmund striker on loan from Barcelona, Paco Alcacer doubled the advantage for the visitors two minutes after the restart. But newly-signed Galatasary striker Florin Andone got one back for Romania and Kepa Arrizabalaga made a stunning last minute save to ensure a 2-1 victory for La Roja.

Ramos was happy with the result but had a warning for Robert Moreno’s side. “The result was fair, but we shouldn’t have reached the final moments in the state that we did,” he said.
