The Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, gave the Ibrox academy product his debut at the end of last season.

Dapo Mebude of Rangers is seen prior to the Ladbrookes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and St Johnstone at Ibrox Stadium on February 16, 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Rangers winger, Dapo Mebude, appears to have sent a message to someone on Instagram.

Mebude trained with Steven Gerrard's first-team midway through last season, although his debut took until Rangers' season finale at Kilmarnock to arrive.


The 17-year-old academy kid proved a popular call-up with many Rangers supporters, and has no obvious detractors.


He, nevertheless, posted the following image on Monday evening, accompanied by the words: '(L)et them talk', the 'Shush' emoji and 'Ear' emoji.

Mebude's fellow Rangers winger, Serge Atakayi, replied with a 'Fisted Hand Sign' emoji and a single blue heart.

The Scotland Under-19 international recently signed a new contract, keeping him at Ibrox until June 2021.
