Rangers FC manager Gerrard 'excited' to welcome Zungu to the Europa League

Rangers FC manager Steven Gerrard has included midfielder Bongani Zungu in the squad to face Polish side Lech Poznan in Thursday’s Europa League Group D match at Ibrox.

After signing for Rangers on a loan deal from French Ligue 2 side Amiens SC, Zungu went into quarantine for two weeks, soon after arriving in Glasgow.

But the 28-year-old finished his isolation period and began training with the rest of the Rangers squad on Wednesday, positioning himself for a debut appearance in Europe.

“I'm very excited to have him available. I think it has been a long two weeks for him in quarantine alone in a flat in Glasgow,” Gerrard told the club website.
