Ever since becoming a professional football player, Nile Ranger has done his best to get sent to prison.

Now he has achieved that.

The former Newcastle player who has had far more chances than he ever deserved has finally ended up in jail.

Nile Ranger has been sentenced to eight months after having previously admitting an online banking fraud, where a woman was conned out of more than £2,000.

The 26 year old Ranger appeared at Wood Green Crown Court for sentencing on Tuesday afternoon, alongside Aseany Duncan, 19, from Enfield, North London.

Ranger pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud, which was that on February 18 2015 he conspired with other persons to defraud Diane Bloss, by obtaining her personal online banking details and then transferring online £2,090.23 from an HSBC account to a Santander account.

As well as being sentenced to eight months in prison, Nile Ranger was ordered to pay a £100 victim surcharge and £1,200 prosecution costs.

Co-accused Duncan was also jailed for eight months.

Ironically, this jail sentence has come at a time when he has just completed his most successful season as a play.

Ranger appeared in 27 league games for Southend this past season and scored eight goals, the club ending up seventh in League One.

    This kid must have been dropped on the head at a very early age otherwise how can anyone explain his suicidal life choices ? I see him ending up as a hobo underneath Waterloo Bridge and ultimately dead from meths poisoning by the time he’s 40.

    For a paltry two grand this fool had ruined his career, livelihood and reputation.

      Aye the money involved seems trivial to a professional footballer.

    Such a waste of a decent footballing talent. Thought that he might have turned a corner with Southend.
