Scottish Premier League Champions Glasgow Rangers have hailed outgoing Bongani Zungu as a positive influence, as the club paid tribute to the midfielder.
Zungu’s loan spell at Ibrox came to an end with the 28-year-old set to return to his to parent club Amiens, who campaign in France’s Ligue 2 at the end of the season.
There was an option for Rangers to buy Zungu outright for a fee of R50.8m, to make his stay at Rangers a permanent one; however, Steven Gerrard opted against it after Zungu along with four of his teammates breached COVID-19 protocols in Scotland.
Zungu managed a total of 21 appearances for the Light Blues, playing his part in the club lifting their 55th League title, as well as their successful Europa League Campaign.
Speaking to the club’s website, Rangers’ Sporting Director, Ross Wilson, heaped praise on the former Mamelodi Sundowns star.
“We made a number of changes to the squad last summer and the group has a real strength and connection in it between all of the players. Greg and Bongani were two really positive influences and popular members around the group,” Wilson said.
It now remains to be seen if Zungu will continue with life in the French second division or if he will look to secure a move elsewhere.
