Cristiano Ronaldo’s WAG Shayk defends dodgy hairdo criticism

The girlfriend of Portugal’s star player came to his aid on Twitter when fellow model Bar Refaeli dared to type what millions of Euro 2012 viewers were undoubtedly thinking

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hairdo has caused many a football fan to roll their eyes, but during Portugal's quarter-final it sparked a war of words between WAGs on Twitter.

As the Real Madrid winger ran the show in Thursday night's 1-0 win over Czech Republic, model Bar Refaeli - an ex of Hollywood A-Lister Leonardo DiCaprio - dared to type what millions were undoubtedly thinking.

She tweeted: “The only thing I can think of when I watch Ronaldo is that hair gel should really be outlawed!”

The not-so-subtle dig at the former Manchester United attacker attracted the attention of his girlfriend Irina Shayk (pictured above), who replied to Bar’s tweet in brilliantly catty fashion.

She responded: “Being a hater is not a cute look. Learn to love.”

Shayk’s SI Swimsuit Issue colleague decided not to retaliate, which is a shame as there’s nothing like a full-scale Twitter model brawl to brighten up a weeknight!
