Weekend Of Cheats

While über-actor Cristiano Ronaldo was hoisting the Premiership trophy at the Theatre of Dreams, in Scotland and Spain there were some theatrics the Portuguese pouter would approve of. Rangers midfielder Kyle Lafferty did his best WWE impersonation as he went down upon minimal contact with Aberdeen’s Charlie Mulgrew. His actions got Mulgrew sent off and helped Rangers secure a valuable three points in the Scottish League race. At least Rangers fined Lafferty and made him issue an apology.

Meanwhile at the Vicente Calderon, Sergio Aguero did an Olympic-worthy dive to earn Atlético Madrid a penalty that Diego Forlan converted for the only goal in Atlético’s 1-0 victory over Valencia. That victory moved Atlético two points ahead of Valencia in the race for the fourth and final Champions League spot. I guess sometimes it does pay to cheat.
