Queen of the South have completed the signing of Rangers starlet Dapo Mebude on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old striker has made one senior appearance for Rangers, which came at the end of the 2018/19 season. He has been a regular for the Rangers Colts side. Now he has joined Queens for the remainder of the season.

Tried to sign player numerous times

Manager Allan Johnston was delighted to sign the striker. Indeed, he is a player that Johnston has long been a fan of. He has tried to sign the youngster on numerous occasions.

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” he said.

“Kick on with his career”

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” Johnston concluded.

Johnston could make his Queens debut in the vital league game against Morton on Saturday. At the moment, Johnston’s team is only three points clear of the relegation play-off places.

If Mebude can score the goals that help Queens avoid any prospect of relegation, then he will have turned out to be a great signing.

As Johnstone is such a fan of the player, it would be no surprise to see him make his debut against Morton.
