Bongani Zungu has earned a start for today’s AFC qualifier v Sao Tome and Principe.

The South Africa man earns his latest cap with his 25th appearance for his country, which includes a healthy 17 starts.

He impressed greatly v Hamilton, and also scored for the Africans in the first leg after coming on as a sub, so he’s one Steven Gerrard and indeed all of us have high hopes for in a Rangers shirt.

But first it’s essential international duty and like his Rangers team mates Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo the big lad is in a qualifier second leg, but of course the first leg went a lot better for his nation than Balogun and Aribo’s.

Zungu is one Rangers followed for a long long time, and after his smooth debut in the rout over Brian Rice’s side, hopes are high indeed that he can continue in that vein – having a good performance for his country today can only enhance his stock.
