Steven Gerrard names five Rangers stars fined for attending illegal house party

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has confirmed five of his players will be fined for attending a house party, subsequently breaching Covid-19 rules.

Police raced to a property in the West End of Glasgow in the early hours of Sunday morning, dishing out fines to a group caught in a property.

Rangers launched a probe into the incident over the weekend – and Gerrard was quick to name the quintet involved in the incident when pressed today.

"Yes. Bungani Zungu is involved," Gerrard began.

"Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Dapo [Mebude] – who is on loan at Queen of the South at the moment.

"And a young goalie who is an academy player but has spent some time around the first-team as well, Brian Kinnear."

Gerrard also continued by explaining the sanctions coming the way of the five involved.

"Well first and foremost we have to acknowledge that five of our players have been involved in a breach of the Covid regulations which, from the top to the bottom of the club, we are all really disappointed in.

"That will be dealt with internally. The players will be fined and we are involved with the SFA and the government to find the solution in terms of those boys.

"They've been removed from the club and the squad for a short time now while they isolate. I'll sit down with all those boys face-to-face once the situation allows us to do so.

"We'll certainly move forward from it. I think we're at a real critical stage in terms of the games coming up and where we are as a club. It won't affect us as a group. I've been absolutely delighted with the group in terms of their application.

"I feel personally let down by recent events, but I'm trying to move forward and focus on the important things which is to prepare the team for a huge game against Antwerp.

"I'm really excited, I'm looking forward to the game and so have the players. They've trained extremely well going into this game and it's important that we focus on the important things, which is the games that are in front of us."
