Wiltshire Police confirmed the 23-year-old forward would appear at Swindon Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

A force spokesman said: "Wiltshire Police can confirm that Nile Ranger, 23, of Gordon Gardens, Swindon, has been charged with one count of criminal damage.

"He has been remanded in custody. He will appear at Swindon Magistrates' Court tomorrow morning."

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.

Earlier on Monday, Swindon Town announced that Ranger had been invited to a disciplinary hearing at The County Ground on Thursday following a meeting between chairman Lee Power and team manager Mark Cooper.

A spokesman for the League One club said: "Swindon Town can confirm that meetings have taken place between senior members of the club and, having consulted with the various football bodies, the club have invited Nile Ranger to attend a disciplinary hearing on May 1 to take place at The County Ground.

"The club have contacted Nile informing him of this meeting. Meanwhile, an investigation is being carried out.

"The club have provided Nile with reasonable notice of this disciplinary meeting to allow him the opportunity to state his case.

"The club will make a further statement following Thursday's hearing."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
