La Liga has denounced homophobic abuse directed toward Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo during Saturday's El Clasico at the Nou Camp.

The Spanish league announced via a statement it will send a report to the Spanish government's committee against violence, racism, xenophobia and intolerance in sport.

The statement specifically refers to anti-gay slurs against Ronaldo and insulting chants against Real Madrid heard during a moment of silence for Dutch great Johan Cruyff before kick-off.
