The 27-year old forward has been club-less since parting ways with Turkish side Genclerbirligi in 2017 and joined the Citizens on the transfer deadline day.

The Citizens mentor admitted that his side has hit a jackpot in signing the former Bournemouth striker and will race against the clock to help him get his career back on track.

"Getting Rantie to his best as soon as possible is going to be a tough challenge (because) in the coming months we have Afcon qualifiers and you will see him in the Bafana squad and I don't care who says what."
