PAUL SCHOLES has fired a dig at Cristiano Ronaldo in a blunt Instagram post.
That’s after the veteran had his contract ripped up by Manchester United on Tuesday.
Ronaldo’s bombshell interview with Piers Morgan last week stunned club chiefs.
And he is no longer a Man United player after the Red Devils announced his deal had been mutually terminated.
Ronaldo is now free to forge his own path without having to worry about transfer fees or club negotiations.
But Scholes was less than complimentary when reacting to the news on social media.
In an Instagram Story post, which now appears to be deleted, Scholes wrote: “Mission accomplished… a***d!”
Ronaldo split opinion amongst United legends after returning to the club 18 months ago.
While the likes of Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand backed Ronnie to the hilt, others including Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville were less than complimentary.
In Rooney’s case, he became the target of Ronaldo’s anger in the Piers interview.

The now-DC United boss has made no secret of his disdain for the striker’s recent conduct and performances.
This prompted Ronaldo to lash out at Rooney, claiming the ex-England captain is JEALOUS of his longevity and looks.
Wazza has since reacted to Ronaldo leaving United, and has surprisingly wished his former teammate all the best after being a “fantastic servant.”
Rooney said: “Am I surprised? No.
“There was no other choice but that’s a shame because he’s been a fantastic servant to the club.
“I wish him the best wherever he goes.”
