Not again, Nile

When the Lone Ranger's name is back in the news, then you can pretty much guarantee it's not going to be positive. And once again you'd be right. Already due to be up in court on 21st March on a charge of being drunk and disorderly, he's now among three players to be charged by the FA for posting a homophobic tweet. Personally, I'm just surprised to discover he's been tweeting about something other than Nando's...

Ranger has been charged along with QPR's Man Utd loanee Federico Macheda and Walsall's Manny Smith, with former target Ravel Morrison and one-time England player Michael Ball having both recently been fined. Evidence of a clampdown by the FA, then - encouraging to see them following up the announcement of their Opening Doors and Joining In anti-homophobia and exclusion campaign with genuine action.

Oxford City recently sacked striker Lee Steele for the same offence. Here's hoping Jabba sees sense, takes the opportunity gifted to him and does likewise.
