Ex-Ibrox starlet Dapo Mebude has revealed he is hopeful of a return to Rangers in his career to be the "main man" at his former club.

The 22-year-old - who plays for KV Oostende in Belgium - spent his youth career at Rangers before moving onto Watfor in 2021 and then abroad.

However, the forward has admitted a return to his "home" at Rangers is still an ambition is his career.

Mebude did make one appearance for Rangers during his time in Glasgow - in a 2-1 loss to Kilmarnock in 2019 - but was largely involved in the B team and youth sides as he continued his development at the club.

Mebude - whose brother Dire also progressed through the Rangers youth system - told The Athletic: “We spent Christmas together in Belgium.

"It’s the same story as me in that it’s about transitioning into the first team now.

"Hopefully, I will play with him one day. He plays right wing and I play left wing so there is room for two of us.

“One of my goals is to go back to Rangers one day. I would love to be the main man scoring goals at Ibrox. That’s my home.”

The Scotland youth international - who also counts Wimbledon and Queen of the South in his former clubs - hasn't played for Oostende since September.

And Mebude is currently working to improve his fitness and make a remarkable comeback after a horror car crash.

The youngster was in a coma for five days after a freak car accident  led to emergency heart surgery.

Thankfully, Mebude survived the terrifying ordeal and is set to return to first-team training next week.
