The 23-year-old forward was charged with criminal damage by Wiltshire Police at the start of the week following an incident in Swindon.
Ranger attended a disciplinary hearing at the County Ground on Thursday following a meeting between chairman Lee Power and team manager Mark Cooper.
And the League 1 side announced on Friday evening that the outcome of the meeting was a parting of ways with the former Newcastle player.
A short statement on the club's official website on Friday evening read: "Following on from yesterday's disciplinary meeting with Nile Ranger and his PFA representative, Swindon Town Football Club can confirm that both the club and Nile Ranger have mutually agreed to a termination of Nile's contract with immediate effect."
On Sunday, a national newspaper reported it had been handed CCTV footage allegedly showing Ranger assaulting a woman and damaging a block of flats in the town.
However, Police said on Monday evening the unnamed woman had spoken to officers and no further action would be taken.
On Sunday, Wiltshire Police said damage "in the region of £2,000" was caused to a lift door, wall and glass panel at the property.
