Craig Shakespeare leaves the Foxes after spending less than a year at the helm.
The move comes as a surprise as there were no reports of locker room turmoil; there were several such stories in the build up to Ranieri's sacking.
As Leicester City hosted West Brom at King's Power Stadium on Monday, the Foxes were in serious risk of losing at home for the third time in a row.

The Baggies have not won a match since their win against Burnley in August, however, three draws, as well as two victories, has helped Tony Pulis' side to a mid-table position. "His dedication to the Club and to his work has been absolute and the contribution he made to the most successful period in Leicester City history is considerable", a statement read on Leicester's official site.

Oct 17, 2017 - Shakespeare was sacked by the club, four months after signing his permanent contract.
Shakespeare, part of Leicester's coaching set-up since 2011 and an integral component in the club's first English league title, won his first four games in charge in all competitions as the team eventually recovered to finish in 12th spot.
He took charge of one Albion game as caretaker boss in 2006 before becoming Nigel Pearson's assistant at Leicester.
