NILE Ranger has pleaded not guilty to one count of criminal damage at Swindon Magistrates Court.

He will face a trial at the same court at 1.45pm on July 17.

He was released on conditional bail. He must reside at Gordon Gardens, Swindon, and report to Gablecross police station every Tuesday and Friday until the trial.

The incident took place shortly after 4am on the morning of Sunday, April 13, the day after Town defeated Brentford 1-0 at the County Ground.

In CCTV released over the weekend, Ranger is allegedly seen to kick down a security door in the basement of the block of flats he lives in.

The door, lift and a glass panel were reported as damaged at a cost of £2,000.

The video also shows a man striking a woman three times, though no charges were brought before the court for common assault.

Ranger faces a disciplinary hearing at the County Ground on Thursday, when the club will decide his future. He currently has two months to run on his current deal.

The former Newcastle United forward also faces a trial for drink-drive charges at Newport Magistrates Court on May 12.
