South Africa international Bongani Zungu is among the five Rangers FC players that have been slapped with a ban for breaking coronavirus protocol.
Midfielder Zungu, striker Dapo Mebude, goalkeeper Brian Kinnear, defenders Nathan Patterson and Calvin Bassey have all been banned for six matches by the Scottish Football Association.
The quintet broke Covid-19 rules by attending a party in Scotland last month and Zungu, Patterson and Bassey were then told to stop training with the team following the protocol breach.
The trio then apologised to the Rangers fans on their return to training under manager Steven Gerrard last month.
Striker Mebude and goalkeeper Kinnear are currently out on loan at Queens of the South and Annan Athletic, respectively.
Zungu, who missed Bafana Bafana’s 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Ghana and Sudan last week, will now watch Rangers’ next four games from the sidelines.
This is because four of the matches will be immediate and two games will be suspended until the end of the current campaign.
The SFA released the following statement on Tuesday.
