  Who will win Celtic vs Rangers? Our writers make their big game predictions The old rivals meet in Glasgow's East End and it should be a fascinating affair.With no fans inside the stadium, it will be like nothing we've ever witness before when Celtic take on Rangers in Glasgow's East End at lunchtime on Saturday.

Rangers have allegedly scouted Zungu ahead of a possible bid, which would have had to take place earlier this year as no French games have been played since Additionally, Rangers have taken time to watch video footage of Zungu in action during lockdown; a possible sign that they’re very keen.

According to The Sunday Mail (11/10, back page), Rangers will have to pay just £2.7million to sign Bongani Zungu permanently next summer. The Gers pursued Zungu for much of the summer, and after the deal looked to be dead, they finally got their man on deadline day.

South African international midfielder Bongani Zungu will join the Rangers first-team squad for training as they prepare for their Europa League Group D fixture against Lech Poznan at Ibrox on Thursday night.

The 28-year-old is now free of the quarantine period he had to observe following his arrival on a season-long loan from French club Amiens, a deal concluded in the closing hours of the transfer window on October 5.

Zungu has been included in Rangers’ Europa League group stage squad by manager Steven Gerrard and is therefore eligible to make his debut against Polish side Poznan as the Scottish Premiership leaders look to build on the positive start they made to the campaign with their 2-0 win over Standard Liege in Belgium last week.

A place on the bench is the most likely scenario for Zungu as he gets up to speed with his new team-mates but Rangers assistant-manager Gary McAllister has welcomed yet another selection option in an already highly competitive area of the Ibrox squad.

"Zungu becomes available to train with us just prior to Poznan,” said McAllister. “So that’s very encouraging. It adds to our strength in the middle of the park.”

“I’ve seen him develop for a number of years now and he has made great progress,” Furman told Rangers matchday programme. “For a big guy, Bongs has very good feet and is good on the ball. He’s strong too, so I don’t see him having any problems with the physical nature of Scottish football.

“What an opportunity it is for him to play for a massive club. He is more than up for the challenge. I was already there when he first got involved with the national team and he caught my eye very quickly. I was really impressed with his ability.

“All round, he can play in that box-to-box role because he moves well but he also has a more defensive side to his game that he can utilise."
