Rampant Ronaldo

Rampant Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo added another accolade to his collection this season after being confirmed as the top player in the 2007/08 Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

The Manchester United star helped fire the Red Devils to a 10th Premier League title at the weekend and has been the shining light for the Old Trafford side this term, amassing 838 points to romp to first place with an 108-point gap between himself and second-placed Emmanuel Adebayor.

A 30-point haul in the final day win against Wigan helped push the Portugal international`s match average up to 25 points per game - four points more than Fernando Torres - who finished the season in third overall - and United team-mate Wayne Rooney (who ended up 11th).

Carlos Tevez also rounded off a fine first campaign as a Manchester United player by finishing in sixth overall with 598 points - Sir Alex Ferguson having 10 of his players in the top 100.
