Nile Ranger Faces Fraud And Money Laundering Charges


Nile Ranger was on Newcastle’s books from 2009 through 2013, but once Alan Pardew came on board in late 2010 to replace Chris Hughton, Nile’s days at Newcastle were numbered.

That was because the new manager didn’t appreciate Nile turning up late to training and not giving 100%.

Nile only just signed a three and a half year deal at Southend United earlier this month, but news today that he has been charged with fraud and money laundering over an alleged scam.

The charge involves a person’s bank account and the details of it were taken so money could illegally be withdrawn from the account.

Ranger is now 25 years old and he has officially been charged with “conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering” according to police.

The Evening Standard is reporting he was arrested by detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s cyber crime Falcon unit.

The Metropolitan police have said the offenses were committed in February of last year and Ranger is due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court today.

This is not good news and it had even looked like Nile was trying to clean up his act – he needs to do that quickly for his own good.

Ranger played 62 times for Newcastle with 3 goals before joining Swindon Town in 2013.

    Stopped caring about Ranger a long time ago. Why should we care when he clearly doesn’t? He’s a clown.
    Rafa bingo for tonight’s win.

    Darlow
    Yedders Lascelles Clark Dummett

    Shelvey Hayden

    Ritchie Diame The Gouff

    Only changed one because Rafa always makes at least one change. Watch tonight be different. 🙂

    I see Sunlun have said there’s no money for transfers in January.
    We complain about Ashley, but seriously, what do they do with the fortune they get from the PL? They get decent crowds, but every transfer window they constantly plead poverty. If I was a mackem – which thankfully I ain’t – I would be definitely asking that question – where’s the money gone?

    Shelvey has got to be a starter tonight, play the strongest squad, get the lead and then introduce alternatives. However, with Colback unfit there is only Anita or Tiote that offer themselves to the DM role. Unless Diame moved back (please) but as he seems to be finally settling and otherwise off to the African Cup, it seems doubtful.

    IMO Ritchie looks like he out of form in his usual position on the wings, so am not sure starting him centrally would be beneficial. I do not know if he has played in behind the striker before, but the option of Diame dropping back and Ritchie #10 is appealing. That would allow the dependable Goufran to stay on the left and Atsu on his favoured right side.

    Gayle
    Gouffran – Ritchie – Atsu
    Diame – Shelvey
    Dumm – Clark – Lasc – Anita
    Darlow

    Changes things enough to keep players on their toes, whilst keeping an established system, with an experienced and attacking line up that should not struggle to subdue an inferior opposition.

    Although I think we might see Colback if he’s fit and possibly Atsu in for Ritchie.

    Jail, great minds thinking alike or fools seldom differ? 🙂 Going for 0-3 tonight. Any similar performance like Saturday and the score could easily double that. Thought our one touch football around the area was very impressive. Going to be like a home game anyway with the big support turning out. Our history at Wigan might not be ideal but this season we’re a completely different animal.

    I forgot all about Diame going to AFCON and Atsu, when is Aarons back fit or can we rule him out forever. We need to bring in a CAM in January another bid for Knockeart, Fostieri is a possibility but I think he knacked himself when he went on strike.

    Jail, with Atsu being away in January, it might give young Callum Roberts a chance to move up. Looks like Aaron’s is done for another season though.

    I was not thinking of dropping him from my starting line up at that point and was considering who would play along side Hayden. However, as I like to offer an alternative selection he unfortunately lost out. I hope this puts your mind at ease in relation to my footballing fitness and you will not be required to insult my intelligence directly.

    Bobbybee @ 5 – Can’t disagree, but don’t forget their previous manager was Hippoheed. Chances are there are some heady contracts still running down?

    Rowett been sacked? Mad seemed to be a good manager and, somethings that is quite rare, an honest one

    On Ranger who cares hes a pleb we’ve known that for a long time and hes often been in trouble with the law, was also in financial difficulties not too long ago so its no surprise he went looking for a way out

    If ur interest in Sunderlands ownership and their failings around their finances pretty sure Mick Martin has done a few pieces on how terrible it is in True Faith, its no surprise they have no money to spend come Jan tough on Moyes though

    Probably not no but he is a product of his up bringing by all accounts and he has never had good people around him either

    Must of done something right to get another contract somewhere though? Was blacklisted last I saw. Anyway I just dont really care about him anymore

    OK – time for Rafa’s bingo bongo
    Rafa knows he has to rotate a bit, but NOT as much
    as he did against Blackburn.
    So I reckon 2 changes
    Yedlin for Anita & Perez for Ritchie
    with Mitro and Atsu as early subs:

    …………Darlow
    Yedlin… Lascelles… Clarke… Dummett
    ……. Shelvey……. Hayden
    Perez …….. Diame…….. Gouffran
    …..……… Gayle.

    Subs: Ritchie : Mitro : Atsu etc

    Bobby,

    Thanks. A few bevvies to sleep on the way. A welcome of 30+ degrees on arrival plus 3 points will start it off nicely.

    Jail,

    Yes, I am aware. Only submitted my first bingo team in October (Ipswich or Brentford, cant remember) so not doing too bad. Don’t think I’ll get owt tonight though. Gives the rest a chance to catch up and keep it interesting.
