Warming up the crowd before Kay’s set, Vardy said: “Where are all the Tottenham fans?”
The question was met with many boos and then Vardy replied: “Still got no bottle!”
Former England forward Vardy was part of the Leicester squad that won the Premier League against the 5,000/1 odds in the 2015/16 season.
Spurs were their nearest rivals for the title for most of the season, although Arsenal forced Tottenham into third on the final day.
Many opposition fans later suggested Leicester won the league as Spurs ‘bottled’ their best chance to win the Premier League.
However, new Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou has made a smashing start to this year’s campaign.
Spurs are yet to be beaten and are second in the league table.
They’ve won four and drawn one of their five league matches, their only defeat was getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup last month by Fulham.
Tottenham fans took to social media to respond to Vardy’s roast, hitting back by saying there is no rivalry with the Foxes and also pointing out they were relegated from the Premier League last term.
One fan said: “Are we supposed to have a rivalry with these guys?”
Another added: “Why are you guys so obsessed with Spurs? We literally couldn’t care less about your tiny club.”
A third put: “From a bloke who got his team relegated and playing the championship.”
Leicester have made a good start to life in the Championship, finding themselves second with five wins from six.
Vardy has scored 172 goals during his 11-year spell at the Foxes including a goal and one assist this term.
