The former United striker’s record had stood since 2003, but it was broken by the England’s striker’s first-half drive. Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at some of the best Twitter reaction. All-time leading Premier League goalscorer Alan Shearer (@alanshearer): “Congratulations @vardy7 what a magnificent achievement!!! #11inarow” Leicester favourite and former striker Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker): “Vardy! He scores when he wants.” Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand (rioferdy5): “Congratulations to Mr Vardy….what a story…always believe kids…it’s never too late.” Vardy’s fellow England international Kyle Walker (@kylewalker): “Take a bow @vardy7 #recordbreaker #Sheffield” Former England manager Glenn Hoddle (@GlennHoddle): “What a super goal from Leicester for Vardy s record breaking goal. Well done J. V .” Another former Leicester striker, Alan Smith (9smudge): “Absolutely delighted for @vardy7. A record to cherish for the rest of his life #LCFC” It was not just the world of football that was delighted to see the Foxes striker break the record. England wicketkeeper Jos Buttler (josbuttler): “He’s only gone and done it! #Vardy” Olympic gold medallist Greg Rutherford (@gregjrutherford): “What a dream day for Jamie Vardy. Incredible story and rise to success. Massive well done.” And finally, the man whose record was broken was gracious in seeing his 12-year record disappear. Van Nistelrooy (@RvN1776) offered his congratulations to Vardy, tweeting: “Well done vardy7! You’re number one now and you deserved it. #11inarow.” Press Association Jamie Vardy broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s Barclays Premier League goalscoring record by netting for an 11th consecutive game in the match against Manchester United.
Nemani Nadolo powered over for a score that was confirmed by the video referee in the 79th minute and Ruan Pienaar held his nerve to split the posts for a match-clinching conversion.Montpellier return to the top of the table as a result, but Clermont remain well adrift of the top six having again failed to transfer their European Champions Cup form to the domestic league.A spectacular finish from Mali Hingano had looked set to earn last year’s Top 14 winners and Champions Cup runners-up victory on Sunday, the replacement diving over a pile of bodies for his side’s second try.Greig Laidlaw converted both and also added five penalties, but Montpellier – who had crossed twice in the first half through Louis Picamoles – stole victory after piling on the pressure late on.Nos Cistes s’imposent à Clermont sur le score de 29 – 30.
