Some Rangers fans think Dapo Mebude could make his long-awaited Gers debut this weekend.
Mebude has impressed for Rangers at youth team level, prompting Steven Gerrard to include him in some of his senior training sessions and matchday squads.
But the winger has yet to follow in the footsteps of Glenn Middleton, Stephen Kelly, Serge Atakayi and Jordan Houston - each of whom made their competitive bows under Gerrard this season.
The Rangers manager has recently hinted, however, that opportunities could be handed out before the season's end.
And with Mebude not among the 10 Gers youngsters currently in Hong Kong for the upcoming Soccer Sevens tournament, he may find himself in pole position for a run-out against Kilmarnock.
No mcpake on Sunday then, mebude maybe? https://t.co/ZT5x0tqdJU— Jason Lamont (@jasonlamont72) May 15, 2019
Was thinking that earlier mate, would of hoped to see him on Sunday at Killie but obv not. Presume Dapo will go down tho.— Scott® (@smrobertson79) May 15, 2019
Certainly looks that way mate.— Willy (@SpatestonBear2) May 15, 2019
Same with Kelly as well, thought he'd have a good chance of being involved. Dapo seems pretty likely to get a chance now I'd guess— Revan (@Revan1872) May 15, 2019
Could we maybe see Dapo on the bench, seeing he isn’t in Hong Kong?— Nathan (@ns_1872) May 15, 2019
I thought he’d be in with a shoutout I’d imagine the likes of Dapo, Middleton may play a part and the American boy Polster hopefully gets some time— G (@GSudz72) May 15, 2019
Dapo got the call instead— Davie⚽ (@WATP115) May 15, 2019
Kelly and Houston are among the Rangers youngsters who have travelled to Hong Kong, along with Nicky Hogarth, Cameron Palmer, Nathan Paterson, Josh McPake, Andrew Dallas, Daniel Finlayson, Kai Kennedy and Matthew Shiels.
Should Gerrard hand Mebude his chance for Rangers at Killie?
