NUFC fans react as Nile Ranger’s career hits new low – he’s done the unthinkable yet again..

After being released from prison over the summer, ex-NUFC ‘forward’ Nile Ranger has shot himself in the foot yet again, with Southend confirming this week that they’ve been forced to terminate his contract due to ‘reoccurring disciplinary issues’.

The 26-year old was released from Pentonville Prison in August for bank fraud and looked like he might just be getting his playing career back on track with 20 appearances for Southend this season.

This wasn’t to be the case for long however, with the forward now without a club after yet another sacking. Here’s the full statement released by Southend this week:


“Following a meeting yesterday with Nile Ranger the Club has today terminated the player’s contract in accordance with the terms of the agreement. This decision was taken following reoccurring disciplinary issues, including timekeeping, which undermine both the unity of the group and the management.

“In many ways it is regrettable having worked closely with Nile over the past 18 months. However, the interests of the Club are paramount and the Board will never allow those objectives to be undermined.”


He’s been given countless chances over the years but continues to show his employers no respect. He’s now had his contract scrapped early at the last FOUR clubs he’s been at permanently. I suspect this might be his last.

Here’s some interesting reactions from NUFC fans to Ranger’s latest mistake:
