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.
Some “rangers” fans being racist towards my family over a game of FIFA ??

Hope you have actual proof it was a rangers fan. If it was then the club should deal with but genuinely hope you’ve proved this before tweeting it

That is a disgrace that some so called fans has been racist towards your family, but trust me the majority of us are nothing of the sort, the real fans support the players and anyone who’s racist towards a players family isn’t a fan, chin up mate

Sorry they had to experience that at all, never mind from Rangers fans. Absolutely sickening.

Sorry your family has had to see that Dapo ?. They are the absolute scum & I’m embarrassed that they try to associate with our club. Unfortunately idiots like that still exist in society. Hope you report to the police & if they should hold a season ticket I hope they get banned

Dapo this not acceptable, they are racists and should be dealt with appropriately. Report them, Rangers and the true Rangers family want them out. Society needs them dealt with.
