Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Real Madrid's next three La Liga fixtures after his red card in the 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

The 2013 Ballon d'Or winner - who is celebrating his 29th birthday today - was dismissed with 15 minutes to go for pushing Carlos Gurepegui in the face and confronting midfielder Ander Iturraspe.

The red card ensured he would face an automatic one-match ban, with an extra two games added for a gesture of dissent, which was made as he left the pitch.
