Bongani Zungu set to leave Rangers at end of season, returning to Amiens

Rangers midfielder Bongani Zungu is set to leave Ibrox at the end of this season after his failed loan spell.

The South African is currently suspended after breaching COVID-19 protocols, and may not play another game for the club with two games remaining.

Amiens boss Oswald Tanchot has confirmed that Zungu will be back at the French club next season with one year left on his current deal.

Speaking via the Daily Record, Tanchot appeared to confirm the update that will leave Steven Gerrard with a space in his squad for next season.

“For next season, we won’t have the services of loan players Molla Wague and Racine Coly who will return to their parent club,” he said.

“But we will have Bongani Zungu back, who has a year left of his contract with us.”


This is one of those moves that will not be sorely missed next season.

Zungu has hardly made any impact during this campaign, making only one start in the Scottish Premiership, with 12 added substitute appearances.

Steven Davis and Glen Kamara have been ever-present and even with injuries to Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield, Zungu hasn’t been able to push his name into the reckoning.

This is the best move for all parties, and it will allow more transfer activity.

Nnamdi Ofoborh will arrive at the club this summer, and it will be either him or another signing that takes up this spot, we hope they offer more competition than Zungu himself has.
