Rangers fans have been pointing out what they view as a fatal midfield flaw in the side ahead of a reported £3.8m move for South African international Bongani Zungu.

With the transfer feeling “almost inevitable” according to Four Lads Had a Dream, the Ibrox support have been analysing why the club are set to splash out such a large amount for the player.

For many Rangers fans, the stiffness of the club’s midfield against Aberdeen highlights precisely why they need more energy and more forward-thinking passes.

Some of the Rangers support think Ryan Jack and Glen Kamara can’t play in the same team in matches where Gerrard’s side dominate the ball.

The feeling is that they possess too many traits which are focused on possession, play too deep, and in turn slow down the match.

The club’s support – and clearly the management team – want to see a greater level of dynamism in the middle of the park.


Whilst Jack and Kamara are clearly good players, and in many ways not similar at all, Rangers have clearly identified the need for a stronger transitional midfielder in their squad.

Many of the club’s supporters believe that playing both players is needless when the club is controlling the match and it in fact hampers the pace of attacks.

Some of the club’s fans are hoping Zungu offers more of a forward pass should his transfer get over the line.


Rangers are reportedly discussing personal terms with Zungu over a four-year deal at the club with the Scottish Sun claiming over the weekend that the move was edging closer.
