Dapo Mebude has called out Rangers fans for the racist abuse his family have received on a Games Consule!

The young Ibrox striker turned to Twitter late last night with his revelations splitting the support. Some called out the scum among their own support while others suggested that it was folk pretending to be Ibrox fans to bring shame on the club.

There didn’t seem to be many calls for the club to investigate the issue to reveal the culprits. Others called on Mebude to ‘name and shame’ those involved, when you are the subject of that sort of action it is unlikely that you want to turn detective and relive what you have gone through.

Mebude was born in London in 2001 into a family of Nigerian descent whi moved to Scotland where his talent was recognised by Ibrox scouts and the SFA, he has represented Scotland from u-16 to u-19 level and made one first team appearance as a substitute under Steven Gerrard.

In July 2019 the Ibrox club hurriedly launched an inclusive programme called Everyone Anyone, soon afterwards UEFA twice closed parts of Ibrox after fans were guilty of racism in Europa League qualifiers.

No sanctions have ever been applied by the SFA or SPFL for racist chants or actions at Ibrox.

A statement from the club SLO highlighting the actions taken by the club is expected on Friday morning- perhaps he should reflect on how effective the club programmes and initiatives have been.
