Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has given troubled striker Nile Ranger some hope of remaining at the club but has warned him against any more problems.

The 20-year-old has had off-pitch issues in recent times, having been involved with the police twice in the last fortnight.

The Premier League club are ready to trade in Ranger for a suitable transfer fee, with boss Pardew having excluded him from even his reserve side.

However, the 50-year-old has left the door slightly ajar for Ranger as he wants the London-born player to rectify his behavioural problems and become more professional in his outlook.

Responsibilities

"Nile needs to understand what the responsibilities of a professional footballer are," said Pardew in The People. "It is not just about what you do on a football pitch.

"These incidents keep coming up and I am not going to accept them. They need to stop happening and then I will start thinking about considering him.

"But he has a responsibility as a role model to younger players and to people in the city. There is no-one else involved.

"He needs to sit down and have a good talk to himself because everybody else has talked to him. We are at that stage."
