Jamie Vardy and Leicester City celebrate Championship title win with wild party and cheeky dig at Leeds by singing ‘I Predict a Riot’

Jamie Vardy and his Leicester City team-mates are still singing, dancing, and carousing after sealing the Championship title. 

Leicester beat Preston 3-0 at Deepdale on Monday night to bring silverware back up to the Premier League, with Vardy bagging two goals. 

Their changing rooms celebrations were boisterous and mocked Leeds United as the players all bounced and belted out Kaiser Chiefs’ rock ditty ‘I Predict a Riot’.

That harked back to when Leeds and their fans blasted out the same tune at Elland Road in February when they beat Leicester 3-1 and cut the gap to them to six points. 

Vardy and his pals took that song back to one of their houses on Tuesday morning and made merry with beer, games, and dancing, sharing their joy on Instagram.

The striker, 37, was almost hanging off one of the beams on the ceiling, such was his euphoria. 

They were slapping the kitchen worktop to create their own beat. 

‘Have you boys just been on a bender,’ asked one fan in the comments section. 

‘JAMIE VARDY’S HAVING A PARTY,’ wrote another. Insightful. 

On Monday night, 5,700 travelling Leicester fans at Deepdale sang ‘I predict the play-offs’ as they trolled Leeds.

The mockery continued in the Leicester dressing room as a video emerged of Jamie Vardy, Harry Winks and co singing ‘I predict a riot’ as they celebrated.

Mail Sport isn’t sure if Leicester would win any awards for their singing, but their passion was faultless. 

Vardy, 37, has scored 20 goals this season and is in talks with Leicester over a one-year contract extension. His deal is up in the summer.

Mail Sport understands that both parties are interested in a one-year renewal but there are no guarantees and if he does not stay, offers from elsewhere are likely to arise.

He believes he can keep playing into his 40s. 

Vardy, who has scored 190 goals in his 12 years at the club, admitted he is unsure of whether he will remain at Leicester for their Premier League return. 

‘I might not be,’ Vardy said. ‘I’m not ready to hang the boots up yet, the legs feel fine. I feel as fit as I ever have, so we’ll just see what happens.

‘This club is massive. I’m not going to shy away from it. They took a massive punt on me when they signed me. A non-League player. It took time for me to adapt. 

‘I struggled in my first season but second season we hit it off like a house on fire. The goals started flowing.’

Vardy has already cemented himself as a Leicester legend thanks to his leading role in their shock Premier League title win in 2016.

The forward has also secured the FA Cup with the Foxes, as well as two Championship titles.

Fans quickly took to social media to laud the veteran for blasting the shot, with the forward described as ‘one of a kind’.

Vardy scored twice before Kasey McAteer added a third and Vardy was hailed for emphatically smashing the ball high into a gaping goal unnecessarily hard from point-blank range for his second. 

Defender Wout Faes had struck the post after a mazy run into the box, with Vardy reacting quickly to latch onto the rebound in the six yard box. 

‘Here comes Faes, round one, past another, he shoots and it’s back off the post, Vardy’s there. Does he tap it home? Nah, he absolutely thumps it into the top of the net and the away end is LIMBS!!!’ the Foxes tweeted.

‘Jamie Vardy with the most unnecessary smash into the rood of the net in the history of football,’ one account wrote.

‘You love to hate him, can almost guarantee he screamed “have it” as he hit it,’ another said.

Vardy has admitted he is unsure whether he will be at the club next season but they are in contract renewal talks 

A third simply wrote ‘The most Jamie Vardy goal’, while a Preston fan admitted ‘I really respect it’ despite the forward scoring against their club.

The Foxes can reach 100 points if they beat Blackburn at the King Power Stadium in the final game of the season on Saturday.
