Journalist Dean Jones has delivered his verdict on Rangers’ recent links to striker Lyndon Dykes.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has claimed that the club would be ‘keen’ to bring him to Glasgow.
Football League World also recently reported that the Gers are interested in reuniting Beale with his former player.
Dykes will know Michael Beale very well as he was at the club when the Rangers boss was in charge of QPR earlier this season. The Scot made the move to West London back in 2020, joining from Livingston for a fee of £2 million.
Jones stated, “I’ve checked it out and Dykes is definitely someone that Rangers are keen on.
“The slight problem is that QPR absolutely do not want to lose him.”
TIF’s view on Jones’ comments…
A potential move for Dykes to Rangers makes a lot of sense, a couple of big factors could come into play that lead him to head up to Scotland.
The first one is the already previously mentioned link to Beale, it’s clear that the boss values the 27-year-old in high regard if he’s looking for the forward to play under him once again.
Secondly, Dykes was born in Australia but represents Scotland at national level and has 26 caps to his name. He admits he didn’t support a team growing up, but you have to think he’d be attracted to the idea of playing for one of the biggest sides in Scotland.
Dykes’ best goal-scoring season in the 2020/21 campaign with QPR, he netted 12 Championship goals that season. However, his overall tally with the West London side is not so impressive, scoring 27 goals across 103 appearances in all competitions.
The move seems logical but Rangers should look to explore other options aside from Dykes, he doesn’t seem to be a consistent enough finisher.
