West Brom 0 Leicester 3: Vardy leaves fans in stitches as he plays up to empty stadium with ear-cupping celebration

JAMIE VARDY left fans in stitches after cupping his ears to celebrate converting a penalty in front of empty stands in Leicester's 3-0 win.

The retired England striker made the hilarious gesture after bagging the first of two spot-kicks to help seal a deserved three points for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Leicester new boy Timothy Castagne had previously handed the Foxes a 1-0 lead on his debut.

Ben Chilwell's replacement arrived from Atalanta for £21.5million and made an instant impact in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old headed home from Dennis Praet's cross in the 56th minute to breathe some life into the game at The Hawthorns.

The Belgian full-back continued the weekend's theme of debut goals after Arsenal's Gabriel and Newcastle's Callum Wilson both found the net yesterday.

Vardy had earlier suffered a brief injury scare as he came away hobbling from a challenge but shook off the knock so slam home a brace of pens.

Slaven Bilic's top flight new boys were left in no doubt about the task ahead as The Baggies delivered a lacklustre performance on their return to the Prem.

But it was Vardy's cheeky celebration that stole the day with fans loving his antics.

One tweeted: "Jamie Vardy celebration is the best kind of energy."

Another added: "Vardy pulling out that celebration in an empty west brom stadium, my legend."

One supporter described it as 'sh*thousery' while another simply said 'that man loves it'.
