Bongani Zungu was handed his first Scottish Premiership start for Rangers in Sunday’s disappointing draw against Hamilton.
The Gers thought they had done enough after a late Brian Easton goal gave the league leaders a late lead.
However, an even later equaliser from Ryan Callachan earned Hamilton a point that, in truth, they deserved following a terrible Rangers effort.
After the game, Steven Gerrard claimed that it was the club’s worst performance of the season and it is hard to disagree.
The reason Zungu hasn’t been starting for Rangers is that we simply have much better midfielders available.
In fact, Zungu probably sits bottom of the pecking order when it comes to Gerrard picking his midfielders.
He doesn’t play in the big games so he has to be ready when the Gers come up against poorer sides like Hamilton in games where some of our better players will be rested.
He had the perfect chance to show Rangers and the Gers fanbase what he was all about on Sunday afternoon and he failed to take it.
Every Rangers outfield player was shocking on Sunday and while we know that most of the players who started against Hamilton can play better, we don’t know if Zungu can.
He has been consistently poor since he arrived in the summer and it is no wonder that he has played a lot less than any of us expected.
The South African will leave Ibrox when his loan spell ends at the end of the season and we can’t see the club bringing him back.
All we had to see on Sunday was a good performance and Zungu couldn’t even give us that.
Don’t expect to see him in any important games in the second half of the season.
In other Rangers news, Gerrard has said that we will be appealing Kemar Roofe’s SFA ban.
