Nile Ranger, Newcastle’s 20 year-old striker had managed to get himself into trouble again.
Nile Ranger – has got himself into trouble again
This time he has been charged buy the English FA with improper conduct related to comments he made on Twitter.
Newcastle United have today issued this statement from the Football Association relating to the charge:
Newcastle United’s Nile Ranger, Walsall’s Manny Smith and Manchester United’s Federico Macheda, currently on loan at Queens Park Rangers, have all been charged with improper conduct in relation to comments made on Twitter.
The charge is that the players acted in a way which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute.
It is further alleged that the breach included a reference to a person’s or persons’ sexual orientation.
Each has until 4:00 pm on Wednesday, 29th February, 2012, to respond to the charge.
Nile is almost fit again after recovering from injury but it will be surprise, if he ever plays for the Newcastle first team.
We expect Nike Ranger to be sold in the summer, but like the case with Xisco, it’s whether Newcastle can unload the player to some other club, since both players are on high wages at Newcastle.
Last November Ranger was fined£3.3K with costs after admitting drink-driving after the Newcastle striker had been arrested at 4.45 am on September 11th, after being pulled over in his black and white Range Rover in the Newcastle city centre.
Tests showed Ranger had 94 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, when the limit is 80 millilitres.
Nile is bringing the good name of Newcastle United into the headlines for all the wrong reasons, and he cannot say he hasn’t been given every chance by the Newcastle club to sort himself out, and get his career back on track.
We should add that on the current charge he is innocent until proven guilty, but we think he was already on his way out of the Tyneside club.
