Frank McAvennie has claimed that Bongani Zungu has played his last game for Rangers after he was one of five players who breached COVID protocols.
Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear were the other four players to have breached the rules in order to attend a party.
Should Rangers start Zungu?
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Celtic and Scotland international striker has claimed that Zungu has played his last game for the Ibrox faithful and also let rip into the other players:
“I think he [Zungu] will have played his last game for the club. But he wasn’t even very good when he came in, was he?
“The big boy Bassey, he said: ‘I want to come in.’ He played against St. Mirren and he was all over the place.
“I think there’s not gonna be too much missed there out of the five of them. But it still gives the club a bad reputation. It’s hurt Steven Gerrard.”
Zungu not doing himself any favours
Of course, Zungu has not done himself any favours by breaching COVID protocols to go and attend a party.
The South Africa international is currently on loan from Amiens for the rest of the 2020/21 term and incidents such as this will not help him if he has any ambitions of sealing a permanent switch to the Scottish Premiership.
Zungu has not exactly pulled up many trees on the pitch either, with no goals or assists from midfield in 15 matches in total over all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, given that his last appearance for the Gers was on the 7th February away at Hamilton, the 28-year-old may well have played his last game for the club as McAvennie has claimed.
