Former Rangers youth prospect Dapo Mebude is determined to revive his career in Scotland, six months after a devastating car accident that left him fighting for his life.

The one-time Scotland under-21 internationalist sustained what were described as "life-threatening" injuries in the January crash while playing for Belgian club Oostende.

However, Mebude has made a remarkable recovery and has today been pictured training with Scottish Championship side, Livingston, hoping to earn a contract.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at Ibrox and made one first-team appearance under Steven Gerrard in 2019 before moving to Watford two years later.

David Martindale's Livingston have also secured the signing of Ryan McGowan as they look to make an immediate return to the Scottish Premiership after their relegation into the second tier last season. 

"We’re delighted to welcome Australian defender Ryan McGowan to the Home of the Set Fare Arena after the former St Johnstone man agreed to put pen to paper on a two-year-deal with the Lions," a Livingston statement said.

"A familiar face in Scottish football, Ryan has played for Heart of Midlothian where he lifted the Scottish Cup as well as spells with Ayr United, Partick Thistle, Dundee United, Dundee and most recently, St Johnstone, where he’s spent the last two seasons playing in the Scottish Premiership.

"In amongst his stints in Scotland, Ryan has also played in China, Australia, UAE, Kuwait and England, commanding a reported £750,000 in transfer fees along the way.

"The 34-year-old has been recognised with 22 caps for the Australian national team, playing at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, famously assisting Tim Cahill’s volley against the Netherlands.

"Ryan will wear the number 5 shirt for the Lions and is likely to feature in tomorrow’s final pre-season friendly away to Motherwell. Welcome to West Lothian, Ryan!"
