Relegated Championship side Blackpool have shocked the Football League by extending Nile Ranger’s contract by another year, according to the Daily Mail.

The striker came out to see that the club had ‘taken the mick’ out of him with the contract they had given him in the summer and claimed he was on ‘less then minimum wage’.

The ex-Newcastle United man signed for Blackpool last summer on a one year deal, but went AWOL on the back end of last year. They club had the option of extending his contract, and have reportedly activated that option.

Blackpool manager Lee Clark left the club over the weekend, but had previously stated that he did not want Ranger back, who has previously had contracts cancelled at Swindon and Newcastle.

The 24-year-old was so stunned that he posted a screenshot on Instagram of an email from the club’s secretary, informing him that his contract had been extended with the caption:

“#REALLY!?!”

Blackpool are in a lot of trouble for next season. They only won four games throughout the whole of the Sky Bet Championship season and are expected to completely overhaul their squad again this summer.

The Tangerines are also without a manager, and their club is seemingly becoming less and less attractive by the minute.

The seaside club finished rock bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, amassing a meagre 25 points.
