Unbelievable – Nile Ranger set to get yet ANOTHER chance in football – Confirmed by manager

Oxford United boss Karl Robinson has confirmed that he has taken ex-NUFC striker Nile Ranger on trial at the club – allowing the 27-year-old free agent to train with his team as he gives him ‘2-3 weeks to prove himself’.

The former NUFC youngster was sacked by Southend earlier in the year for ‘reoccurring disciplinary issues’ and has been yet to find a club ever since – however Oxford look set to give him a chance to prove himself once again.

Given he’s had his contract terminated by his last FIVE clubs, I really can’t understand how he’s being given another chance.

Ranger was released from Pentonville Prison in August for bank fraud last summer and it looked for a second that he might be getting his career back on track with Southend last season – only for him to be sacked later in the season due to poor time keeping.

Oxford may be struggling in the relegation zone of League One, but if Karl Robinson thinks Nile Ranger is the answer he’s got another thing coming.

  1. Olly, in the 4 divisions of the league as it exists, managers and owners have no choice but to take on any talent they can find that fits their budgets. When he is focused, Nile Ranger has more talent than most players in the UK.
    Until the Prem and even lower leagues have salary caps, realistic roster limits and a UK draft, the top 6 will thrive and everyone else is fodder for them to beat-up.

    Many say the Prem is the greatest league in the world, but what consolation is that to everyone else that lives in fear of relegation. I don’t often hear, “Oh, we went down, but my, that Man City is wonderful!”



  2. I agree with WJP – insomuch as talent is talent and teams need to take it from wherever they can.

    However – the EPL IS the best league in the world and roster and salary caps would kill that.

    THe next biggest league will be China. The Epl needs to hang onto it as long as it can, and there’s no reason to hand it to them on a plate.
