Midfielder Bongani Zungu on Wednesday apologised to Rangers fans for his actions that resulted in him being suspended by the club for a Covid-19 breach.

Zungu was suspended by the club with manager Steven Gerrard saying he felt "let down".

The on-loan Bafana Bafana international looks likely also to now have blown any chance at a permanent transfer to the Scottish club.

According to GlasgowLive, the 28-year-old has finally broken his silence by issuing a groveling apology to the club and its fans.

"I'd like to apologise to the Rangers fans. It's been a great season so far for the club and my message is I’d like to apologise and hope the fans can continue to support us and we can put this behind us and focus on the future," said Zungu.

He was one of five players dropped from the squad as they were forced to self-isolate following a gathering that was broken up in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Rangers hold a huge 18-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership standings and need just a further seven points to clinch the league title, their first since the 2010/11 season.
