Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos has had his say on the VAR decision that led to the red card given to teammate Luka Modric during the win over Celta Vigo.

The Croatian international was given his marching orders thanks to the assistance from VAR.

The numerical disadvantage didn’t affect Real Madrid who ran out 3-1 winners.

Real Madrid doubled their advantage on the hour mark with German World Cup winner Toni Kroos.

Luka Vazquez went on to add a third goal for Real Madrid with nine minutes left on the clock.

Iker Losada scored a consolation goal for the home team in added time as Real Madrid began the new Spanish La Liga season with a good win against a tricky team.
