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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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?
