Nile Ranger has been arrested on suspicion of assault after a 33-year-old man was found unconscious and with a broken jaw in the Groat Market in the early hours of this morning.
If true, and I have no reason to doubt that it is given the form book, then surely it has to spell the end for Nile Ranger at Newcastle?
To be fair the end was nigh anyway after the player was told by Alan Pardew that he was surplus to requirements, but surely this latest episode gives the club the means to force him to leave should anything tangible come of it?
Even if it doesn’t it just adds another line to the rather long list of previous transgressions that Nile Ranger has been involved in such as the part he played in an armed robbery, which resulted in him spending time in a Young Offenders Institute, and the time he was pictured posing with a gun. Replica or not it just isn’t the done thing is it?
Nile Ranger is an example of a waste of space. If you look up waste of space you will see a picture of Ranger acting like a cock in some form or another next to it. Yes I’m probably being a “hater” but at the end of the day here is a lad who has great potential and has caused Premier League defences problems.
He could go on and make a fortune doing something we would all love to do. What does he do instead? Abuse the chance that has been handed to him on a plate. It’s time for him to go. Give Chris Hughton a phone call and offer him Ranger for free. I mean giving players away is all the rage these days is it not, and Hughton is said to be interested in taking him to Birmingham.
Ranger lacks any desire to improve or fulfil his potential. He is late all the time and doesn’t give his all on the training pitch.These aren’t my opinions. They are the opinions of Chris Hughton and Alan Pardew who have both worked with the striker and have both criticised the striker in their own ways. Neither way has worked.
Just get him off our books and let him rot somewhere else.
