JOSE MOURINHO bowed out from the Bernabeu on a high with a 4-2 victory against Osasuna.
The Special One was taking charge of his last game as Real Madrid boss before his imminent return to Chelsea.
And his team conjured up one last win for him with goals from Michael Essien, Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema and Jose Callejon.
Mourinho, who had earlier given a short goodbye statement on Real’s website, lurked in the tunnel as his players went onto the field for their final-day game.
When he did finally come out, he received a mixture of cheers and jeers from fans.
One section of supporters held up signs reading: “Thanks for Everything Mou” and chanted his name. But another segment whistled in protest after what has been a season to forget.
After the match, Mourinho waved to the crowd before heading swiftly down the tunnel.
The Portuguese boss is leaving after three years with the La Liga giants. He won the the Copa del Rey in his first season and the Spanish league in his second, but he only added the Spanish Super Cup in a disappointing third campaign.
Real have finished well short of league-winners Barcelona this term but their season at least ended with a win against lowly Osasuna.
Higuain gave the hosts the lead in the 35th minute. Former Chelsea sar Essien doubled their advantage four minutes later and celebrated by hugging his boss.
Osasuna fought back after the break and were level with goals from Roberto Torres and Alvaro Cejudo.
But Benzema put Real back ahead with 20 minutes to play before a late goal from Callejon rounded off the scoring.
