In an interview earlier this week, Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater revealed that manager Claudio Ranieri makes a sound like a bell if he feels any players are not paying attention.

At today's press conference ahead of the Foxes' Saturday evening Premier League match at Watford, the media put that story to Ranieri and the Italian says it helps keep the players smiling.

"Dilly Ding Dilly Dong! Wake up! On Christmas day, for all the players and all the staff, for everybody, I got a little bell - 'Dilly Ding Dilly Dong!' It's just a joke," he said.
