Nile Ranger left Blackpool weeks ago and the club doesn’t know where he is
Where is Nile? Blackpool say they haven’t a clue.
Nile Ranger left Blackpool, but he didn’t bother telling Blackpool. Or asking for their permission. He didn’t do anything really, besides take off.
Blackpool manager Lee Clark said he has no idea where the forward went, just that he hasn’t been around for weeks.
“If anyone can let us know where he is, send me a letter and we will go from there,” Clark told the Blackpool Gazette. “I don’t know where he is, I haven’t seen him for more than two weeks. He’s been asked to report into training and has been asked to play in games and he hasn’t been seen.”
Ranger tweeted out a response to the uproar surrounding his disappearance, citing “family issues” as an explanation:
I’m in London.. Family issues.. For the people that claim they don’t know where I AM !!

Ranger only joined Blackpool in the summer after Swindon cut him loose. Swindon was the second club to have cut ties with the striker for disciplinary reasons, and it sounds like Blackpool may be the third.
