What happened to Nile Ranger?


Recommended Posts

“He was with the Protec Football Development School for a few weeks before being scouted by Southampton. His career was almost over before it began, as whilst playing for the club he was sentenced to 11 weeks in a Young Offender's Institute for his part in an armed street robbery in Muswell Hill committed before signing for the club.“

 

Seems to have had a troubled time since being young.

Theres an interview he does somewhere with "The true Geordie"

Ranger sorta tries to excuse every discretion he ever made in football...Doesn't do a very good job

 


Doesn’t he say he genuinely has a problem with waking up in time for work? Like he’d drive to the training ground the night before, sleep in the car and STILL miss training. I think it was something on those lines.

 

Never quite got the hype originally when he was young. Big strong physical player but didn’t see anything to think ‘wow he’s going to be a top top player’.

I worked in Swindon when he played for them. We were both in the same hotel and his 'Ranger Rover' in black and white was permanently parked in the hotels only disabled parking space.  Absolute waste of space
