Rangers are surely in the market for at least one new striker this summer, with Steven Gerrard needing some more firepower.

Florian Kamberi has returned to Hibernian at the end of his loan stay at Ibrox, whilst Jermain Defoe is currently out injured.

Alfredo Morelos is being linked away from the club, and there is still a strong chance that he leaves Rangers before the end of the transfer window.

A whole host of strikers have been linked with moves to Ibrox, and one of them is Livingston hitman Lyndon Dykes.

The Daily Record claimed last month that Rangers do like Dykes, but believe that he is overpriced at Livingston’s £2million valuation.

Dykes hit 12 goals and 10 assists this past season, proving to be a pest to defences with his combination of aerial ability, work rate and link-up play.

The Australian was a real nuisance to Celtic defender Christopher Jullien, but pundit Davie Provan has told The Scottish Sun that he thinks Dykes isn’t good enough for a Rangers title challenge.

Provan believes Rangers must find two strikers this summer, and thinks Ross Wilson needs to ‘earn his money’ by finding somebody better than Dykes.

“Rangers have known for months Morelos could be headed for the exit door. With Jermain Defoe already injured, why no striker?” said Provan. “Taking the best offer for the Colombian is a no-brainer. When you can’t trust a player to stay on the pitch, best to get rid. But, for me, the striker’s looming exit leaves Gerrard needing two frontmen if he’s to get near Celtic.”

“With Defoe just two months short of his 38th birthday, Gerrard can’t rely on his fitness. No harm to Lyndon Dykes, but Gerrard will need an upgrade on the Livingston man if he’s serious about the title. This is when Ibrox head-hunter Ross Wilson has to earn his money,” he added.
