Rangers face opposition from Championship side Cardiff City if they are to land reported transfer target Lyndon Dykes, according to the Daily Record.

Steven Gerrard is reportedly a fan of the Livingston striker but the Record claim that it is the Welsh side who have show the “most interest” in securing his signature.

Dykes scored 12 goals in 33 games before the season was curtailed and had a really impressive season as Gary Holt’s side defied expectations to secure a top-six place.

He does have a real lack of experience at the top level with last season his first in top-flight football so far.

Rangers have already signed Ianis Hagi and Calvin Bassey this summer and, barring any departures or injuries, there’s not a pressing need for a centre-forward right now.


The Daily Record’s report claims Livi value the striker at £1million but whether they’d let him leave the Tony Macaroni Arena for that sort of fee is unclear.

Reports last week had suggested a £2million fee so it is anyone’s guess just now what Livi are looking for.

The 24-year-old has been touted as a future international for either Scotland or Australia but is yet to win his first cap for either country after the season was brought to a premature end.
