Throughout Leicester's Premier League match against Liverpool, fans could be seen holding up banners and signs in support of the 65-year-old. Ranieri led the Foxes to an improbable Premier League title in 2015-16, but it wasn't enough to save his job as Leicester sit in 15th place and look to be in serious danger of relegation this season.
