​Leicester captain Morgan: Mahrez celebration shows he's still one of us

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan believes that fans only need to look at the way Riyad Mahrez celebrated his equalizing goal against Bournemouth to know that he cares about the club.

Mahrez had a massive issue with the Leicester board during the January transfer window, where he wanted a move to Manchester City.

When the move did not arrive, he went on strike as the transfer window shut. But now he is back in the fold, and scoring crucial goals.

Morgan told Leicester Mercury: "Obviously, yes he is one of our players. He is no different really.

"Anyone who scored that goal would have been the same celebrations.

"Obviously, it was Riyad and you got to see the response."
