Madrid:

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo said his backheeled winner against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday was a memorable moment, but refused to describe it as his greatest ever goal.

The Portuguese star hit his 29th league goal of the season in Sunday's 1-0 win at his side's Madrid neighbours.

The second half was eight minutes old when the Rayo defence failed to clear a corner at the first attempt.

Ronaldo, facing away from the goal, then backheeled the ball so powerfully from 15 yards out that it evaded at least four Rayo defenders on its way into the bottom-left corner of the net.

"A backheel is always different. It was a great goal but I'm not sure if it was the best of my career -- I have to see it again on TV," he said.

"The most important thing is the victory and the points. Rayo are a great team and it was a very hard game."
