Bongani Zungu's days at Rangers appear to be over after he and four others "brought shame to the club", according to former Aberdeen striker Noel Whelan.
Zungu and four others were caught partying and therefore breaking COVID-19 rules on Sunday, 14 February, which led to the former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder being removed from the squad.
The Bafana Bafana international, who joined Rangers on loan from Ligue 2 side Amiens ahead of this season, is currently self-isolating, with manager Steven Gerrard recently hinting that his chance at Rangers is over.
Former Leeds United and Aberdeen player Whelan believes there is no way back for Zungu into Gerrard's plans after he and the others involved broke the manager's trust.
"He (Zungu) is already gone, absolutely gone – there's no way you're going to be signing a player like that if you can't trust them," he told Football Insider.
"The biggest word in everyone, in any manager, is can I trust my players on the pitch? Can I trust them off the pitch? Can I trust them to be the right character that needs to be embedded into this football club?
"The straight answer there is absolutely not.
"Whether these other four end up playing again for Rangers, that remains to be seen. I very much doubt it, because I think once you cross that line, it's very difficult to come back from it.
"It brings shame on the club, onto the manager as well and the rest of the players. It shows a lack of respect and disrespect to them."
