Under-fire Ranger: 'I'm like Marmite'

Swindon Advertiser: Nile Ranger's Instagram post Nile Ranger's Instagram post

SWINDON player Nile Ranger yesterday attended a disciplinary hearing at the club following a number of high-profile incidents.

Although the club were remaining tight-lipped on the outcome, Ranger himself implied that he was still employed by the club through social media.

On his Instagram account he posted a picture of himself in the Winners Lounge and said “IM LIKE MARMITE #LoveMeOrHateMe #EitherWayImStillGettinPaid 100.

Earlier on, he posted on his Twitter account: “God didn’t put me on this earth to b liked “ImDoingMe”

On Tuesday, the 23-year-old appeared at Swindon Magistrates’ Court charged with causing damage to a door and wall at Gordon Gardens, where the striker lives.

He pleaded not guilty and will face trial in July having been released on conditional bail.

Following his most recent arrest, many fans have said the time has come for the player to leave the club.

In an online Adver poll, a total of 68 per cent of people said the club should sack him.

Despite the public pressure, the player has remained defiant.

On Tuesday he put another picture on Instagram of an Adver board (left), which read ‘Ranger gives himself up to police.’ With the picture, he said: “Would have thought I was bin laden.”

I understand that Nile`s initial contract expires soon. I assume that the option to renew for another year just wont be invoked thus leaving the club with no comebacks. The Club seems to be incurring plenty of legal fees just now and wouldn`t welcome any more !

The only correct decision STFC have taken in years - Why has it taken so long? Who decided to gamble on him in the first place? What an absolute irrational decision just like others within the football club.

Nile Ranger has left the building. Although i deplore all the miss doings he has inflicted on himself over the past months. I feel sorry for the lad because if i had the talent that he had and we at STFC had witnessed. I would take a serious look at myself and say to myself. Why did i FCUK IT UP!.

Scumbag.
Why is it that people that say that (I`m like marmite) are always idiots of the highest order.
I dont understand why the club paid him while he was given time to sort out his court dates, club bent over backwards to facilitate this rsole and now he continues to rub it in our collective faces.

Great talent shame about the person.
Glad he is gone plenty of time to focus on next season with hopefully a settled club.

Urgh, feel dirty just reading his comments. What a monumental arse. But don't worry, if the football doesn't work out there's always Big Brother!

Couldn't have put it better myself. He epitomises everything that is wrong with wealth and fame which s quite current with court cases at the moment. He thinks he has a different set of laws and morals to the rest of us because of who he is. Not sure why they took him on as he left Newcastle under a cloud. A rotten apple who should be dumped from football all together.

My family actually call me marmite.
Because I am popular in certain circles 😇 but I am also hated by a few nutters. 😬

I don't think the same applies to Ranger
