Nile Ranger Sacked

8 years ago

News today of Nile Ranger sacked by Swindon Town after a disciplinary meeting on Thursday.

The 23 year old ‘footballer’ had appeared in court earlier this week when he denied causing £2000 worth of criminal damage when he’s alleged to have smashed down a communal door at the flats where he lives, the incident captured on CCTV at 4am in the morning.

After the hearing, Ranger has been released on bail with the condition he reports to the local  police station (I’m sure he knows where it is…) and he will face trial in July (World Cup commitments permitting).

However, Ranger has now yet again found himself without a club as Swindon have now had enough of him and ‘mutually’ terminated his contract with immediate effect.

The statement on the Swindon website reading;

“Following yesterday’s disciplinary meeting with Nile Ranger and his PFA representative, Swindon Town can confirm that both the club and Nile Ranger have mutually agreed to a termination of Nile’s contract with immediate effect.”

Things could have been a lot worse for Ranger but Wiltshire Police have also confirmed that no further action will be taken in respect of an assault allegation.

The Police also saying that they’d spoken to an unnamed female who is ‘allegedly’ shown being slapped and punched three times in the footage.
