Former Ibrox striker Kenny Miller has suggested to BBC Sport that Lyndon Dykes would be a good replacement for Alfredo Morelos at Rangers.

Miller, who had three different spells at Rangers and also played for their bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic, believes that the Livingston striker would be “good second option” for manager Steven Gerrard.

Lille want to sign Morelos from Rangers in the summer transfer window, according to Sky Sports, with the report adding that the Colombia international striker has already agreed personal terms with the French club.

Miller told BBC Sport: “Dykes had a fantastic season at Livingston. His goal record is not quite matching up as yet with Alfredo’s, but he would maybe be a good second option.”

Stats

According to Transfermarkt.co.uk, Dykes scored nine goals and provided nine assists in 25 Scottish Premiership appearances for Livingston in the Scottish Premiership last season.

Rangers have actually been linked with Dykes, with The Daily Mail reporting in June that the Gers are among the clubs interested in the 24-year-old.

The report also claimed that Livingston value the former Queen of the South striker at £2 million.

BBC Sport has claimed that Livingston have rejected a second and improved bid from Barnsley in the Championship in England, with another team from the same division having also registered interest in the striker.
