Rangers have included exciting youngster Dapo Mebude in their squad for tomorrow night’s Europa League tie in Moscow, as Steven Gerrard looks to secure progression to the competition’s knockout stages.
The Gers are currently top of Group G and unbeaten after three matches, having drawn 0-0 with Spartak Moscow at Ibrox two weeks ago.
With five points already in the bank, Gerrard knows a positive result in Moscow could see his side’s looking towards the last-32, and it seems he’s keen on some of the club’s youngsters getting a taste of European action.

Mebude has been earmarked as a potential star of the future by the Ibrox hierarchy for some time now, and his recent development for the club’s reserve and youth squads have caught the eye.
In last week’s reserve match against Motherwell, the 17-year-old came off the bench to replace first-team forward Umar Sadiq, and went on to blast in three goals in a 6-2 victory.
A Scotland Under-17 international, Mebude was spotted with the rest of the club’s first-team stars at Glasgow airport this morning – so could he really end up getting on the pitch in Russia?
