Reported Rangers target Bongani Zungu has claimed he no longer plays for French club Amiens before liking a tweet suggesting he should move to Ibrox.
The South African international midfielder was the subject of reported £3.8m Rangers transfer interest [Scotsman] earlier in the window but the move appeared to go cold.
Between claims that talks had stalled over personal terms and rumours of troubles with a medical any move for the ex-Mamelodi Sundowns man appeared to hit the skids.
But now Zungu has spoken out about his current situation following Amiens’ relegation to Ligue 2 with the midfielder seemingly keen on a move to Rangers.
When asked he was still playing for Amiens, Zungu replied “No I’m not”.

The midfielder then liked a tweet from user @therangerscurry which said, “you should join Rangers btw”.
The comments of Zungu come after a frustrated Rangers boss Steven Gerrard said he had made it clear the club need reinforcements in the middle of the park.
“Look I can’t be anymore clear with Ross (Wilson) and the Board in terms of what we need,” said Gerrard [RangersTV].
“They know that, I don’t think I have to go public and say that.
“But yes, we certainly do (need additions).
“In the engine room, we need one at least to help us over the course.
“We know we’re expected again to qualify in Europe and play every Thursday, every Sunday.
“You can’t do that unless you’ve got the numbers and we’re one short in midfield.”
Rangers are also said to have launched a bid for Preston midfielder Daniel Johnson [David Anderson] with Lilywhites boss Alex Neil dodging questions about dropping the player at the weekend.
