Ex-Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has backed his former club to make a move for Livingston striker Lyndon Dykes this summer.
The 24-year-old has talked up a potential switch to Ibrox in recent days by claiming he has the ability to play for the Light Blues, and Ferguson agrees that he would be a useful addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad:
“I know Lyndon Dykes has been spoken about the last couple of days and If I am honest I do think he would be a good signing for Rangers.”
As Ferguson mentions, Dykes would offer a different proposition to the strikers currently available to Gerrard, but the major stumbling block would be his price tag.
Livingston have already made it known that they want £2m for the forward, and that is a lot of money to shell out on a player who would likely be used as an impact sub from the bench.
Considering there is reportedly competition from the likes of Celtic, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and a number of other English clubs, the Gers would have to be 100% sure that he is the man to reinforce their options up front.
