It was the Portuguese forward’s first goal of the season following a turbulent summer in which he asked to leave Old Trafford.
However, he was not in the mood for a picture as he headed to the dressing room at half-time.
The fan, who was part of the medical staff at the Zimbru Stadium, reached out to ask Ronaldo if he would stop to take a photo.

The 37-year-old barely even glanced at the woman as he brushed off her outstretched arm and ignored the request as he went down the tunnel.
A member of staff quickly ushered the fan back and she looked stunned at the exchange as she pulled a face.
United closed out their 2-0 win in the second half as they got off the mark in the Europa League following defeat to Real Sociedad last week.
Ronaldo appeared to slap a phone out of the hands of a 14-year-old boy at Everton last season
Ronaldo received backlash last season when he was filmed appearing to slap a phone out of the hands of a 14-year-old boy after United lost to Everton at Goodison Park.
The forward apologised afterwards but was interviewed by police in relation to alleged assault and criminal damage and received a caution.
The child’s mother declined the opportunity to meet Ronaldo and branded him ‘arrogant’ after speaking to the Portuguese international on the phone.
