Guilty as charged

Part of me wonders whether we should be bothering to waste any more time, effort and thought on the Lone Ranger now that we've washed our hands of him. So this is just a very quick note to say he's been found guilty of assault (again), this time on his girlfriend, and that his solicitor's comments in court make clear, as everyone could have guessed, that his departure from Newcastle wasn't so much "by mutual consent" (as per the club statement) as terminated at the club's insistence: "He has had to leave Newcastle United FC by way of settlement. It was not something he wanted to do. He brought it upon himself, he has to move on with his life."

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here. After all, his solicitor is hardly defending his client here (at the expense of the club) - on the contrary, he's admitting Ranger has screwed up badly and paid the price.
