“I don’t see why I couldn’t step into a club like Rangers, obviously they are a massive club in Scotland.
“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 is valued around the £2million mark by the West Lothian club after his debut season in the top flight where he produced decent stats of 12 goals and 10 assists for a team not known to be prolific goalscorers.
The most alluring aspect of Dykes’s play will have been his performances against Celtic last year in which he single handedly bullied their backline on each of the three occasions they faced each other – coming out as victor on two occasions.
There is no doubt that Steven Gerrard will be looking to strengthen his forward line having relied heavily upon Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe last season with precious little else available to spearhead the attack in his squad – regardless of the accuracy of the Dykes rumour, the Gers will continue to be linked with names throughout the window as they look to secure the firepower that will return them to the to of Scottish football for the first time since 2011.
