Southend United considering striker Nile Ranger's future

Southend United say they'll take time to consider striker Nile Ranger's future, after he was jailed for online banking fraud.

The 26-year-old joined the Shrimpers last August, and signed a new three-and-a-half year contract with the League One club in December.

He's been jailed for eight months after admitting to charges of conspiracy to defraud by obtaining bank details and transferring money.

The club needs time to consider its position and also the impact of this startling, unexpected, outcome...

This offence occurred long before Nile joined the club and everyone deserves a second chance, which the club has afforded Nile.

Nile Ranger is unlikely to ever be a model professional, however during his time at Southend his behaviour has been acceptable and improved.

Former Peterborough United player David Oldfield has returned to the club to become manager Grant McCann's new assistant.

Oldfield has signed a two-year deal with Posh after initially carrying out the role for the final few weeks of last season.

It will be the second time that the 48-year-old has been part of Peterborough's coaching staff having previously worked there between 2008-2011.

He replaces Lee Glover who was sacked back in March.

It was a no-brainer from my point of view and I am over the moon. To have his expertise and experience around me and my staff is fantastic.

Since he joined us at the end of last season, the boys bought into his ideas. He is an excellent coach and has great experience of this league.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager

Peterborough have also confirmed that Mark Tyler has been appointed Goalkeeping Coach on a permanent basis, but highly-rated midfielder Jermaine Anderson has turned down the offer of a new contract.
