Gerrard confirms Zungu faces short stint on the sidelines ahead of Benfica clash

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed Bongani Zungu will miss their Uefa Europa League game against Benfica due to an injury.

The 28-year-old midfielder suffered the blow during South Africa's 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixtures against Sao Tome and Principe.

Zungu scored a late goal to seal Bafana Bafana's 2-0 win at Moses Mabhida Stadium on November 13 but he returned to Scotland with a knock.
