Rangers star and South African international Bongani Zungu is “back in Glasgow” as he looks to build on a successful few weeks since joining the Gers.

Zungu, 28, impressed on his debut performance in the 8-0 win over Hamilton, the midfielder coming on for the second half after joining up with his teammates following his loan-to-buy move from Amiens.

The Bafana Bafana star would then be recalled to the South African national team for their AFCON double header against Sao Tome, where Zungu would steal the plaudits.

Assisting the opener and scoring the second in a 2-0 win in the first tie, Zungu would be recalled to the starting line-up for the reverse and played an influential role as South Africa won 4-2.

Clearly buoyed by his transfer to Ibrox – and with his career receiving a much-needed shot in the arm – Zungu took to Twitter to express his delight to be back in Glasgow ahead of a tough run of fixtures.

 

With competition fierce at Ibrox, Zungu will need to be at his best to force his way into an on-form Rangers side.

Zungu has also set about healing old wounds in the aftermath of his South Africa recall, with an incident involving manager Molefi Ntseki now put firmly behind the pair.
