Barry Ferguson wanted to see Lyndon Dykes at Rangers

Barry Ferguson is “disappointed” Rangers failed to sign Lyndon Dykes before the Scotland striker joined QPR in 2020.

The 26-year-old has made 53 appearances for QPR since his move there, in which he has scored 16 goals.

He has also made an impact on the international stage and has bagged six goals for Steve Clarke’s side.

Speaking on the Go Radio Football Show [via the Daily Record] after he scored the winning goal for the Tartan Army on Tuesday night.

Ferguson said: “I’m disappointed Rangers or Celtic didn’t go for him. I’d have liked him to stay up here.

“What did he go for, just over £1m? I’d have liked to see him stay in Scotland.

“Maybe Rangers or Celtic made contact; I don’t know.

“He’s started the season well down there, though, so if he keeps his form up, you never know.”

Ferguson is clearly disappointed.

Now, Dykes has done rather well in the Championship, and you would think that he could have been a good player for either the Bears or Celtic.

The Gers do have a few forward options, but with Jermain Defoe looking likely to retire, you could argue that the Bears need a fourth striker.

Cedric Itten is currently away from the club on loan, but Dykes knows the league, and you would think he could make a big impact at Ibrox.

Now given that Alfredo Morelos was linked with a move to Newcastle United today, could the Gers have to find a replacement for him in January [90min]?

Well, if they do, surely Dykes could be that man to replace the Colombian.

Of course, we are just speculating, and we would hope that Morelos will stay with the Gers for at least a couple more years.

However, should Rangers need to replace any of their current strikers any time soon, Dykes could be a fantastic addition, and we would love to see him at Ibrox.
