'Zungu Has Spat The Dummy Out'

Bafana Bafana star Bongani Zungu has come in for some more criticism by a former Rangers player after breaching COVID-19 protocols.

Read: 'I Would Be Surprised If Zungu Played For Rangers Again'

Zungu and four other Rangers players broke COVID-19 protocols after they caught partying on Saturday.

Manager Steven Gerrard already expressed his disappointment with all five players, who are now self-isolating.

Former Rangers midfielder Derek Ferguson believes the five players do not deserve a second chance after breaking the rules.

"...I am a big believer that you get a second chance in life and in certain things. But those boys won't get it. They don't deserve it because we know the rules," Ferguson told The Scottish Sun.

"There were mistakes made last year and we have learned, everything that goes on in football clubs. They [the authorities] come down on you like a tonne of bricks, you can't do this as you are in the bubble and those guys have just arrogantly have just thought, 'yeah, whatever'.

Ferguson has also accused Zungu of 'spitting out his dummy' and feels the punishment handed out was deserved.

"People say they are young boys, yeah some of them are, but what is Zungu? He is a 28-year-old, experienced boy. He has spat the dummy out," he added.

"He has had a couple of opportunities, St Mirren never took it, Hamilton never took it, and he has gone, 'to hell with it'. And the consequences he could have brought into that Rangers camp? Shocking, they deserve all they get to be honest with you."
