Livingston manager Gary Holt has admitted that Glasgow Rangers transfer target Lyndon Dykes looks likely to be leaving in the summer, and former Gers forward Kenny Miller has been discussing the possible move.
The forward is attracting interest from clubs in England including Championship side Barnsley, who offered around £1 million for Dykes but Livingston want closer to £2 million.
Speaking via BBC Sport about the Gers possibly signing the striker, Miller said: “I would imagine that there must be a replacement ready to come in and lead that line on Saturday or I would definitely hope so.
“Dykes had a fantastic season at Livingston,” says Miller. “His goal record is not quite matching up as yet with Alfredo’s, but he would maybe be a good second option.”
It’s hard to disagree with Miller here as Dykes could strengthen the attacking side of Glasgow Rangers. This is emphasised by the fact that he is already showing potential to be a very good Premiership striker as he made 33 appearances in all competitions for Livingston last season and scored 12 goals whilst supplying 10 assists, per Transfermarkt.
It would help Gerrard that he is already playing in the division because the manager can already see that he is a good finisher in the division and so signing him for such a small fee would not be a risk at all.
When a forward like Miller, who has scored 220 goals throughout his career, and 132 in Scotland, per Transfermarkt, is highlighting the quality of a fellow striker, then it should be a good sign for supporters to see that he is linked to the club.
