The Real Madrid captain was unhappy with supporters of his former club as the Blancos reached the Copa del Rey quarter-finals with a thrilling draw

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos blasted Sevilla fans after his side advanced in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.

A 3-3 draw at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan saw Madrid complete a 6-3 aggregate triumph to book their spot in the quarter-finals.

Ramos celebrated in front of Sevilla fans after his 'Panenka' from the penalty spot late on, while Karim Benzema struck in additional time to extend his team's unbeaten run to 40 matches.

The 30-year-old Ramos, who came through the club's youth system before leaving for Madrid in 2005, was unimpressed by his former supporters.

"I did not disrespect anyone," Ramos said.

"I asked [goalkeeper David] Soria to forgive me, that I was not to blame.

"I am not a fan of a section that has remembered my mother and insulted me from the first minute.

"It will always be my home more or less. I am the captain of Madrid and I will defend my team."

Ramos and Madrid return to Sevilla on Sunday for a top-of-the-table La Liga clash.

"It's football, I would like to be received differently but it will not change anything," he said, pointing to Ivan Rakitic and Dani Alves being treated as "gods" on their returns.

"I'm prepared and it is not the first time I come to play here. I will not change, I come to play football."
