Rangers could be handed a major boost ahead of their match against Livingston with reports suggesting star Livi striker Lyndon Dykes will sit out the match after a fee was agreed with QPR over his transfer.

According to the Daily Mail, the Rs and ex-Rangers boss Mark Warburton have agreed a £2m fee for the striker and he is “expected” to miss the clash with the Gers as a result.

Dykes has previously been the subject of transfer interest from Championship Barnsley who had a £1m bid rejected for the forward earlier in the campaign.
