Zungu and four other academy players were caught partying, and the club moved swiftly to suspended them.

And while Zungu remains a Rangers player, chances of him getting a permanent deal at the end of the season looks bleak.

This after Rangers manager Steven Gerrard hinted Zungu could be let go when his loan deal expires in June.

Zungu, 28, hopes Rangers can put the incident which landed him in hot water behind them and focus on the future.

“And hope the fans can continue to support us and we can put this behind us and focus on the future,” added Zungu.

The South Africa international is on loan from French Ligue 2 outfit Amiens SC, and with his contract also expiring in June, it remains to be seen where he will be plying his trade next season.
