Bad news tonight that 20 year-old Newcastle striker Nile Ranger has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
Nile Ranger – arrested and then released on bail
The news is in the Daily Mirror and the report says that Ranger has been put on bail awaiting the results of a blood test, after he was stopped by police.
Two weeks ago the Londoner was arrested on suspicion of assault, after a 33-year-old man was found unconscious outside a pub in the Newcastle city center, and in that case the youngster was also put on bail.
Nile Ranger had been expected to go out on loan to another club in the loan window that opened last week, and seems to have no future at Newcastle.
That’s because of his reported unprofessional attitude on the training field, and the fact that he has been late to training too many times.
This is not good news, and we have to hope things turn out for the better, but there’s no doubt the youngster has been under stress over the last couple of months, with his Newcastle career seemingly at an end.
