'Wow, can you imagine?' - Exclusive: Rangers urged by Hutton to sign 24yo who's bullied Celtic

Alan Hutton has urged Rangers to sign Livingston striker Lyndon Dykes during the summer transfer window.

The former Gers and Scotland defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, was left drooling over the thought of the 24-year-old partnering Alfredo Morelos at Ibrox.

Football Insider revealed that the Gers were interested in the Livingston ace back in January if they could not pull off a deal for current loanee Florian Kamberi.

The Daily Mail now report that the Light Blues are set to battle Stoke City for the Australia-born hitman this summer after his fine form in the Premiership.

Having seen the 6ft 2in forward give both Rangers and Celtic a torrid time this season, Hutton believes he would be a quality signing for Gerrard and his squad.

Hutton told Football Insider: “I think he’d be a great addition, to be honest. I’ve watched him a number of times and wow, has he given Celtic and Rangers problems throughout the season.

“He’s constantly a thorn in their side, he’s big, he’s powerful, he can hold the ball up, he can turn, he’s got pace, he can finish – I think he’s a well rounded player to be honest.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if Rangers and Celtic were looking at him. When you’re showing that ability week in, week out, for a lesser team – no disrespect to Livingston – it shows great ability. 

“If you’ve got Morelos and someone like him, can you imagine them two playing together? They could link up together and it would be like Edouard and Griffiths at Celtic. It would be a great match.” 

Dykes has scored 12 goals and chipped in with 10 assists in 33 appearances for Livingstone this season.

He moved to the Premiership side from Queen of the South back in January 2019, although he rejoined his old side on loan for the second half of the season.
