Glasgow Rangers have hailed outgoing Kaizer Chiefs target Zungu as a positive influence.

Champions of the Scottish Premier League Glasgow Rangers have paid tribute to departed player Bongani Zungu, hailing him as a great influence.

Zungu's loan term at Ibrox has come to an end, with the 28-year-old ready to return to his original club Amiens, who are currently competing in Ligue 2 in France.

Rangers had the option of buying Zungu outright for R50.8 million to make his stay at the club permanent, but Steven Gerrard declined when Zungu and four of his colleagues violated COVID-19 procedures in Scotland.

Zungu made a total of 21 games for the Light Blues, contributing to the club's 55th League title as well as their successful Europa League campaign.

Rangers' Sporting Director, Ross Wilson, praised the former Mamelodi Sundowns player on the club's website.

“Last summer, we made a number of changes to the roster, and the group now has a tremendous strength and connection among all of the players. Wilson described Greg and Bongani as "two incredibly positive impacts and popular members of the group."

It's now up to Zungu to decide if he wants to stay in the French second division or hunt for a new opportunity.
