Confirmed : Glasgow Rangers Loan Out Talented Nigeria-Eligible Striker
With a statement on their official website, Scottish Championship outfit Queen of the South have announced the temporary signing of promising Nigeria-eligible striker Dapo Mebude.

A Scotland U19 international, Mebude has been loaned out by Premiership giants Glasgow Rangers for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season.

The 19-year-old made his professional debut for the Light Blues against Kilmarnock FC on May 19, 2019, his only appearance to date for the first team.

Speaking on the signing of Mebude, manager Allan Johnston told the club's official website : "Dapo is a player I have admired for a long time. 

"I have tried to bring him to the club the last three transfer windows so it goes without saying that I am delighted that we have managed to secure him this time. 

"This gives him a chance to play regular football and kick on with his career.  He is young so is enthusiastic and full of energy and I think he will complement the players we already have.

"Again we must thank Rangers for allowing the loan to happen".

Mebude has been assigned the number 29 jersey at Queen of the South and is eligible for Saturday's game against Morton.

His younger brother, Adedire Mebude plays for Manchester City's U18 team.
