Bongani Zungu arrived at Rangers as their deadline on Monday. As noted by The Scottish Sun. He has joined on loan. But he is out of contract at parent club Amiens next summer.
The 27-years old had been linked with the Gers for much of the window.
So Rangers fans will be hoping that he was worth the wait as they finally got a move across the line
But McCarthy is confident that has every chance of proving to be an inspired signing.
Bongani Zungu is a complete midfielder, very comfortable on the ball and so strong in the tackle
He can play as a defensive midfielder too because he is so good at cleaning up.
” Zungu can do everything in the middle of the park and that is why Steven Gerrard was so desperate to sign him,” he went on to add.
” Not only is Bongani Zungu a great player, but he is also a fighter.”
McCarthy revealed he has watched Zungu shine in recent years and he’s no doubt the Duduza-born midfielder will not disappoint at his new club.
“I’ve watched him blossom over the last few years and Rangers have got themselves a fantastic footballer”, added McCarthy.

He usually wears No8 like Gerard and while he is not the same kind of player he is hugely effective.
Bongani Zungu can play in so many positions and that is why Gerrard is so interested in him.
Rangers completed a season-long loan deal for Zungu from Amiens just hours before the transfer window
McCarthy has no doubt Zungu has the personality to play a major as Gerrard’s side try to end a decade of Celtic dominance.
