Ex-Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger responds to Sunday league story
Nile Ranger has responded to stories about him turning out for a Sunday league team.
The former Newcastle United striker – who last played professional football in 2018, and has pleaded for a “last chance” – is set to turn out for Barnet Sunday League side AC United.
League secretary John Eager told the BBC: “It's really exciting to be attracting these sort of guys that want to play in our league. I think we both know he's probably not going to turn up every week, but it just goes to show that Sunday league is going up a level. A lot more people are taking a lot more interest in it."
Ranger, troubled by disciplinary problems throughout his career, responded on Twitter.
