The Bafana Bafana star was required to spend 14 days in isolation after joining from French side Amiens due to current travel restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Zungu is expected to join up with his Gers teammates this week and fans will be excited to see what the deadline day loan signing can bring to the club.
South Africa are set to play Sao Tome Sao Tome on November 13th and 16th in the nation’s latest AFCON qualifiers.
Rangers full-back Barisic, 27, has been called up to the Croatian national team despite currently being crocked with injury at Ibrox.

The fact Barisic has been included in the Croatian squad for their upcoming friendly against Turkey (11/11) and UEFA Nations League matches against Sweden (14/11) and Portugal (17/11) is a good sign that any issue is minor.
The Rangers duo will likely be two of several first-team players who’re set to take part in the next round of international fixtures.
