'He's running out of celebrations' - Leicester boss on Iheanacho's amazing goalscoring run
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is pleased with the form of Kelechi Iheanacho and said with tongue in cheek that the striker is running out of goal celebrations.

Everyone has been talking about Iheanacho since the start of March, several Premier League defenders have found it difficult containing the Nigeria international.

The former Manchester City wonderkid has been in excellent form, finding the back of the net twelve times in his last nine appearances across all competitions.

Rodgers has admitted that having Iheanacho play alongside Vardy has helped the Nigerian to flourish as opposed to his other system where he has only one player in attack.

Speaking at Wednesday's press conference monitored by allnigeriasoccer.com, Rodgers said : "The two together, their strengths complement each other. Both of them can threaten in behind.

"They have a synchronized way in which they have been playing, and obviously of course collectively as a team, the team has really benefited from it.

"Jamie maybe hasn't scored the goals so much but his movement has created  a lot of space, his intensity, his work rate, has really helped Kelechi.

"Kelechi himself, my only worry with him is that he is running out of celebrations. Hopefully he can keep scoring and keep celebrating."

Having scored an 80th minute winner against Crystal Palace two days ago, Iheanacho has now taken his tally to seventeen for the current season.
