Livingston star Lyndon Dykes insists that he can be a success at Rangers if the Light Blues follow up on their reported interest in the Australian-born striker.

Rangers have been linked with a move for the 12-goal star, although Livingston claim there has been “nothing concrete” from clubs pursuing him.

Dykes is confident he could handle the step from Livi to a “massive” club in Rangers and learn off his team-mates and manager.

“I don’t see why I couldn’t step into a club like Rangers, obviously they are a massive club in Scotland,” Dykes told PLZ Soccer.


“I back myself 100 per cent and if I did happen to go anywhere I would do the best I can, learn off the players they have, the manager and once I got in that environment I’d put my head down, work hard and be the striker the club needs or the position the manager needs.”

Dykes joined Livingston last year from Queen of the South and had a fantastic first season in the top flight, hitting the net 12 times in 33 appearances in all competitions for Gary Holt’s side.

His form for Livi has led to an international tug-of-war with Australia and Scotland both looking to lure him into their respective setups.

A move to Rangers would only further increase the focus on him, although he’ll have a job on his hands trying to force his way into Steven Gerrard’s side with Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe in the squad.
