Newcastle’s Nile Ranger is in a lot of trouble after a photo of him with a gun was made public.
The photo was reportedly taken by Ranger’s girlfriend, in which the 20-year-old is holding a chrome replica handgun.
He had to know that wasn’t a good idea, especially in this day and age of Twitter and Facebook. Look, if you’re going to take a picture with a gun, at least make it a real one. Be somewhat contentious.
A spokesman for Newcastle United said:
“The club have spoken to Nile and can confirm that the item shown in the photograph is a replica firearm which is not an offence to own. Nile regrets posing for the photograph, which was taken by his girlfriend at home.”
