Newcastle’s Nile Ranger In Big Trouble – Again


21 year-old Newcastle striker Nile Ranger has been arrested on suspicion of rape, and is being held by Northumbria Police following an allegation made by a woman, that she was attacked at a hotel in Jesmond overnight.

nile ranger - in court yesterday

Nile Ranger – in trouble with police once again

This is not the first time Ranger has been in trouble with police over the last 20 months or so, but this is the first time he has been accused of rape.

This is what a Northumbria police spokeswoman said:

“On Thursday January 24 a woman reported to police that she had been raped overnight at a hotel in Jesmond.” “A 21-year-old man has been arrested at an address in Forest Hall on suspicion of rape.”

Newcastle would love to unload the 21 year-old, and it was telling that Alan Pardew said he would have liked to have brought on another striker in the second half against Reading last Saturday – but didn’t have that option – even though striker Nile Ranger was on the bench.

And the London lad angered Newcastle fans after the Reading defeat, by telling them not to come to the games if they were going to boo the players.

A Newcastle United spokeswoman declined to comment on the story this morning.

This could be big trouble for the 21 year-old.

    He’s been an accident waiting to happen for years, and NUFC have turned a blind eye to him. The club even gave him the distinction of representing it in the FA Cup – on that basis alone NUFC deserved to lose.

    He’s apparently on £3.5k per week, which is £3k per week above the average wage, and £3.5k too much. But that’s the problem when footballers are chattel – just hand on and hope someone bites for a million or so – meanwhile let him bring the club into disrepute time after time.

    This is is not about the latest allegations – everyone deserves a fair hearing – but does include the crass stupidity with the £20 notes and his other assorted misjudgements, felonies and transgressions over the years.

    Instead Ashley lays down the law with Colo, a model pro and club captain. Is he simply scared of doing the same with Nile Ranger? Sick inducing.

    As much as I’m not a fan of ranger,this could be pure bull….. easy target. But we shall see…

    Anyway it is time to move him on …simply because he isnt dedicated to the game of football.

    Newcastle United needs as much positive news as possible. The last few days have been great !!

    first of all we all know this guy is an idiot but we can’t just act like he has been proven guilty and sack him as he could then take us to court.

    i will be the first one to say he should not be out our club in the first place after all the s**t in the past but you can’t just sack someone for being questioned. look at how the mackems acted when bramble was in trouble and he got cleared.

    But if he is proven guilty there is no doubt that he will be sacked.

    Ever since the BS claims about dyer’s “roasting” claims, it has become almost imposible to spot the real cases. I can believe this was real though, the guy is a total tit.

    What does he have to do to have his contract terminated ?, the guy is a scumbag and I wouldn’t p*ss on him if he was set on fire. I don’t think I have ever hated an NUFC player as much as him, although Barton & Bellamy come close

    It’s notoriously hard to ever charge someone with rape though, because it’s usually just one person’s word against the other, with usually little in the way of concrete evidence. With that being said, it wouldn’t surprise me – the question is: what was he doing out last night in the company of women when there’s training today?

    Surely there must be some clause in his contract so we can dismiss him. Most of us are stackable if we get a criminal record, I really hope it’s the same for this liability. Does anyone know how long Ranger has left on his contract by the way?

    SSN:

    According to France Football, Newcastle remain keen to add to their ever-increasing French contingent, with St Etienne’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bastia’s Florian Thauvin, Lille’s Nicolas Isimat-Mirin and Guingamp’s Gianelli Imbula all said to be on Alan Pardew’s wanted list.

    I know a Frenchman wgo is also a Fernch teacher so I will get the proper version of le Toon in French

    I think its Nouveau Chateau sur Tyne

    but it might be Chateau Nouveau sur Ttyne

    or even Chateauneuf as although neuf is nine there is a place called Neuchatel which is Swiss French

    If we’ve got ten French guys in Toon the least we can do is get the translation right 🙂

    Anywaywy back to business

    Will we get our No2 striker through the doors or not ?
    Personally would prefer PEA as he is LW/ST but Torq rates RVW so who’d fit best with Papiss ?

    We may all be surprised and find we’ve got a superb bargain in Gouff.

    On another subject..

    So assuming Sissoko signs today, Thavin is 50:50… who thinks there will be any additions beyond those, what position and who and probability…?

    My guesses:

    Mirin – CB – 20%
    Aubameyang – FWD – 20%

    Tell you what, Arsene obviously rates our signings! Just seen him on ssn and he is complaining that some clubs have already played the toon twice, but now we have almost a new team so its not FAIR !

    Look even if he is proven innocent

    We still need to get rid of him as he is still going to cause trouble can imagine that model professional’s like Cabaye at our club are disgusted by his antics

    Problem is releasing him just now would mean paying him money which could result in us not buying another Frenchy!!

    He might have tried to do it, but probably missed the target, and shot way over the top.

    i have never been a big fan of ashley, however if he would just make it straight and simple by telling this scum bag -yob- and perhaps rapist- as well as being a sh/t footballer, that he is not wanted at our club then 1 person hold the door open while ashley boots him straight up the a”’se that hard he lands in monument metro just in time for a train to take him to central to catch a train back to the smoke, i might start warming to him.- just a little.

    Not even bothered talking about this idiot anymore…as far as I see it he isn’t a toon player he is just a leech on the wage bill. Never have liked or rated the guy, useless.

    On more interesting news…hearing reports Valenciennes (sorry on spelling) are making a move for CB…could it be the replacement for mirin?

    is torq about? he might know

    I’m sure if he could’ve been sacked previously that would have happened – it just shows how crazy employment laws are in this country that NUFC cant get shot. The whole employment law system is crazily in favour of the employee and its the type of stupidity that allows idiots like Ranger to keep their jobs.
