A Rangers legend has claimed he would be surprised to see South African midfielder Bongani Zungu in the club's playing jersey again after the player and four of his teammates were caught breaching COVID-19 protocols.
On Wednesday, manager Steven Gerrard explained that he was disappointed with the five players, including Zungu, who broke strict COVID-19 protocols when they were caught partying into the early hours of Sunday morning.
All five players are now self-isolating and facing fines from the club, with Gerrard admitting he felt let down by those involved.
Kris Boyd, a former Rangers player, has now had his say on the matter, adding that he would be surprised if Zungu, whom he feels has been a disappointing signing, represents the club again.
"They've let themselves down, they've let their families down and they've let the club down," he told Sky Sports.
"Yes, you can say that four of the five are young boys, but it's no excuse, especially in this day and age. They are role models to the younger boys in the academy.

"The people in the academy will be saying to the youngsters: 'Look at what Nathan Patterson and look at what Dapo (Mebude) and Brian Kinnear have done to get to the level they've got to, in terms of being involved with the first team.' So, they are role models to the younger ones in the academy and they've let themselves down.
"It was only a few months ago that it happened to a couple of their teammates and they don't realise. I go back to the age thing. You can't use age as an excuse. Everybody knows what's going on in the world right now, so they've made the mistake and they know that.
"Steven Gerrard has come out and said that he feels totally let down by them, and rightly so. When you consider that (Calvin) Bassey and Patterson have been in and around the first team for a number of months now, were on the verge of potentially being part of a title party, they're four games away from winning the league – that's not going to happen.
"Whether that is Steven Gerrard or Rangers speaking to the clubs they go on loan to, to see if they have bucked up their ideas as such. Zungu – I'd be very surprised if you see him in a Rangers jersey again.
"He's been a major disappointment since he's came to the football club and this just tops it all off."
Zungu is currently on loan in Scotland from French club Amiens, with reports suggesting that the 28-year-old could now struggle to earn a permanent move to the Scottish giants.
