Lineker beamed as he posed for a photo with his new pet, who has now safely landed in the UK after being rescued from the streets of Los Angeles.

He wrote on Twitter: “Meet Filbert, the new and already very popular member of the Lineker family. He’s a rescue from the streets of LA.

“I met him on a recent vacation through his foster parents and girlfriend @r_breakspear and it was love at first sight.

“I’ve been dogless for far too long.”

Massive Leicester fan Lineker, who has scored 103 goals in 216 games for the club, will have left Foxes fans ecstatic with what he called his companion.

Filbert Street Stadium was the home of Leicester City for more than 100 years between 1891 and 2002 and holds a special place in the hearts of Foxes fans.

They’ve since progressed to the King Power, but Lineker’s name for his new pet is a nod to the much-loved famous old ground.

Kelly captioned his post, “He’s gorgeous!!!” and Queen Gooner added, “Ah bless you.”

Match of the Day host Lineker was heartbroken in 2019 when Labrador Snoop died.

He tweeted at the time: “I am deeply saddened to announce that my beloved dog Snoop passed away last night.

“He was my friend, my companion, my boy.

“Whether I left home for 2 weeks, 2 days or 2 minutes, he greeted me with equal amounts of enthusiasm and love.

“I will miss him very much. RIP Snoop.”
