The South Africa international has joined Steven Gerrard’s side on a one-season loan on transfer deadline day in October.

Although he has yet to start a league game for Gers, the Bafana midfielder Bafana has made six Premiership appearances and he also made his UEFA debut. Europa League earlier this month against Standard Liège.

Zungu shared his experience at Ibrox Stadium on the Rangers Day program via Glasgow times; “It was awesome. I was lucky to join a team that has a lot of great guys in the locker room.

“They welcomed me and the coaches also have it when it comes to what is expected of me on the pitch.

“Everything has gone well so far. There are a number of guys who have helped me a lot.

“The skipper, from the first day I came he sent me a message and then I got here guys like Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo, Connor Goldson and Jermain Defoe really helped me.

“I’m so lucky to play for a team that has a lot of qualities. For me, instead of seeing it as a competition, I’m really excited because when I have a chance I have a lot of quality around me. It helps with my confidence.

“These things take time and work, but the gaffer showed me a lot of music videos and told me what is expected of me.

“Of course, I play for a team that has a lot of attacking, but part of my job is to be the safety behind the guys when we lose the ball.”

Zungu had a role in Rangers’ 20-game unbeaten streak in the Scottish top flight this season. He revealed he was gaining in form and confidence ahead of Wednesday’s league trip to St. Mirren.
