Swindon Set To Sack Nile Ranger

Swindon Town are expected to sack striker Nile Ranger for gross misconduct on Monday following national media reports of him allegedly hitting a woman there times.

Ranger was set to be sacked several months ago prior to his rape trial which he was found not guilty of, however the Swindon Town squad asked manager Mark Cooper to give the striker another chance.

Ranger told the press that he came to Swindon to concentrate on football and that Town were a club that he could get back to football and behave himself.

He has done anything but and missed several training sessions and despite being given chance after chance, Town are set to sack the striker following footage that allegedly shows Nile Ranger striking a woman and kicking a door in.

Fans have demanded the striker be sacked and a statement late evening from the club appears to indicate they too have had enough.

Swindon Town has been nominated for the Football League family club of the year award in recent times and keeping a thug like Ranger on our books would do nothing but tarnish the reputation of the club.

Town will release a statement tomorrow following talks between manager Mark Cooper and chairman Lee Power.

We would be Incredibly surprised if Nile Ranger is still a Swindon Town player after tomorrow with the club stating they are "absolutely appalled by the incident."

Ranger is out of contract this summer although the club have the option to extend his contract which the club were set to do prior to this set of allegations.
