Real came romping out of the traps with a 3-0 away win over Deportivo la Coruna, but it was Ramos' final contribution to the evening's entertainment that will live longest in the memory. "This is football and that happens, he knows the things that he does - it was a hard match and it's not up to me who has to tell him what is good and what is not".

Ramos had been involved in an incident with Deportivo's Fabian Schar earlier in the game, for which he was cautioned, and was given his marching orders after an aerial challenge with Borja Valle.

Ramos, 31, joins former Barcelona and Sevilla defender Pablo Alfaro and Real Zaragoza legend Xavi Aguado on 18 league red cards.

"I don't like seeing my players get sent-off, but we can't change it now".

Deportivo nearly managed to pull one back late on but Florin Andone saw his penalty kick saved by goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Zidane made four changes from the side that completed a 5-1 aggregate hammering of Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday.

The victory continues an impressive month for Real which has already seen them add the Uefa Super Cup and Spanish Supercopa to their bulging trophy room, and Zidane hopes all his players can continue helping the club win even more silverware.

There was no way back for Deportivo once Madrid took the lead on 20 minutes as Bale pounced on Karim Benzema's scuffed shot to fire into an unguarded net for his first goal of the season.

Bale then turned provider in the second-half to set up Toni Kroos who hammered home a rasping drive shortly after the hour mark.

"In the first three official matches, he did not play much and suddenly he plays and does very well".
