Cristiano Ronaldo became the fastest player to reach 350 goals for a European club, needing just 335 games in the white of Real Madrid to achieve the feat. 

The Portuguese winger netted four times for Los Blancos in their 7-1 rout of Celta Vigo on Saturday, needing just 26 second half minutes to complete his day's work. 

Ronaldo has found himself in the firing line of critics as of late, but responded to those who doubted him in emphatic fashion, with this stunning strike the pick of the lot. 


Although, it wasn't without competition for goal of the day. 


His four goal haul also moved him into second place on La Liga's all time scoring charts with 252 in just 228 games, also becoming the fastest player to reach the milestone. 

However, he still trails Lionel Messi's all time scoring record of 304 so far for Barcelona.

In terms of the current season, he moved atop the scoring charts with 27 goals, two ahead of Messi's team-mate Luis Suarez, with the diminutive Argentine further back on 19.
