Rangers: Fans praise Livingston’s Lyndon Dykes after his performance in defeat at Ibrox - Rangers

A number of Rangers fans took to Twitter to commend a player who lined up against them on Sunday but could have been in Steven Gerrard’s line-up instead had things worked out differently last month.

Livingston striker Lyndon Dykes was a reported transfer target for the ‘Gers towards the end of January, as per The Scottish Sun, before the Ibrox club instead sealed a deadline day loan deal for Florian Kamberi from Hibernian.

The Australia-born 24-year-old featured in the Lions’ attack against Rangers on Sunday and almost snatched a late equaliser for the visitors in their 1-0 defeat. With just under 10 minutes remaining, he latched onto Dolly Menga’s pass and let fly with a volley that crashed off the post, shortly before drawing a save from ‘Gers goalkeeper Allan McGregor with another opportunity (as per BBC).

Dykes has scored nine goals in 22 Premiership games for Livingston this season, one of which came in a 2-0 victory over the Light Blues’ crosstown rivals Celtic in October, while he scored one goal and set up another in their win over St Mirren last week. [via TransferMarkt]
