Jack's rally for Ranieri

A eleven year old boy will be leading a rally in honour of sacked Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri tonight.

Jack Stephens from Knighton in Leicester was left in tears after the Italian was controversially fired last week just nine months after leading the Foxes to the Premier League title.

But the young fan decided the best way to get over his disappointment was to organise a march in the city to thank Ranieri for what he's done for his beloved club. His older sisters have helped him promote the event on social media.

Jack is hoping hundreds of people will join him and his family for the march from the Clock Tower to the Kingpower Stadium ahead of Leicester's league game against Liverpool this evening.

He's keen to emphasise that the rally is not a protest at Ranieri's sacking, but a chance for fans to show their gratitude towards the man he's called "the greatest manager Leicester City ever had".
