Ranieri unfazed by penalty decision


Claudio Ranieri was not complaining about the penalty decision that saw Harry Kane earn Spurs a 2-2 draw with his Leicester City side in their FA Cup third round tie at White Hart Lane.

The decision to award the hosts a spot-kick two minutes from time appeared to be a little harsh but the Foxes' boss Ranieri was philosophical about it.

"I didn't see the penalty, there were two players in front of me, but the more important thing is that the referee gave the penalty so it is a penalty," he said.

"I'm very pleased with our performance. We had eight players who had not been playing for some time, but now they played and they deserved a positive result - 2-2 is a positive result."

Harry Kane meanwhile paid tribute to the home support who he felt kept Spurs in the game.

"It was very important and we definitely didn't want to go out in the third round. We play them again on Wednesday and will have to play them again in the FA Cup.

"You want to be playing all the time, but it is down to the manager and I just wanted to make an impact when I came on.

"We have a great bunch of lads, the staff, the players and hopefully we can keep working hard and keep progressing.

"The fans kept us in the game and we're happy we could keep them in it with a replay."
