Bongani Zungu’s loan spell at Rangers is comparable to Shane Duffy’s catastrophic loan spell at Celtic, according to Frank McAvennie. 

The former Hoops hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the South Africa international never looked good enough for Rangers.

When asked if it was unlikely Rangers would sign Zungu, Steven Gerrard told the Daily Record, “I think that would be fair to say, yes.”

Earlier this year, Zungu was confirmed as one of the ‘party five’, a group of Gers players who broke lockdown rules to attend a party.

Football Insider later revealed that Zungu’s Rangers career was all but over after he was named among the quintet.

McAvennie claims Zungu will be blaming everyone but himself when he explains why Rangers didn’t choose to sign him.

“He never looked good enough,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He barely got a game. It’s one of them, he came in, he didn’t do it. Just like Duffy at Celtic. 

“He’s just got to get on with it now. Go back to your club and start again. 

“He’ll go back and make all these excuses, ‘it wasn’t my fault it was someone else’s fault’. 

“That’s what those loan players do. Just go and do it when you’re on loan so you end up staying. It makes no sense to me.”

Zungu has only made one league start this season and has failed to score or assist in any competition.

He made 20 total appearances during his brief spell at Ibrox.
