Morning fellow bears. With all this talk about which strikers to sign, we all have our own opinion. I have just read an interesting piece from a former rangers striker (and a very good one at that) Billy Dodds. He thinks that Lyndon Dykes would be a very good fit. Billy is a guy that I would certainly listen. Thoughts Bears.

Ger4life, there's no doubt in my mind whatsoever that lyndon dykes would be a very good signing for rangers mate. Not a shred of doubt and he would get even better under steven gerrard! 👍👌.

Dykes is untested against teams that dig in. He will never have faced that at Livingston. I am not totally against him signing but he would be a big gamble and at anything over 500k I wouldn’t be interested!

09 Jun 2020 10:43:28
Would take him but nowhere near 2mill. 750k max.

I assume SGL is happy with being runners up again.

Ger4life and SGL. There is always risks attached with new players. Like others, my opinion is that Rangers need four good strikers that offer different things to the team so that Gerrard can mix it up when needed. Dykes could be one of those strikers as I think he offers something different from what we already have. I thought he played well against us at Ibrox. And at the end of the day if he comes in and does well everyone that has doubts will move on. If he doesn’t do well or fit in then he will become like Greg Stewart. I suppose the question to ask ( and I don’t know the answer to this) is there a better alternative available, someone better or with greater potential for the price?

68 good idea would be to fure livi the likes of stewart and barker for dykes.

The Stuck, i have many years experience following rangers everywhere pal and let me tell you this. I would never except being runners up to them at tiddlywinks,
let alone football! 😂 Over the years i would love to have had a penny everytime when we went to sign a player from a smaller club in scotland, for the amount of times i've heard the negative comments from people like yourself spouting that he's not good enough, he's alright playing for them and not us etc, etc! Every transfer has a degree of a gamble attached to it. I'll also tell you that over the years and players we've signed from other scottish clubs, there's been a helluva lot of good signings, with them improving even more when they came to us. I also have seen failures and also big name foreign failures!,
So we don't know for definite if dykes would be a good signing or not my friend! I personally think he would be!

dykes and a speed merchant. can't see how 6foot + would not be helpful against clubs that sit in. makes no sense i'm afraid.

09 Jun 2020 15:02:15
For every Billy Dodds there will be two or three who differ, just like on here. I differ completely from Coops, for instance, I can see little to suggest Dykes would improve enough, quickly enough to offer us a real striking option.

09 Jun 2020 15:23:18
What striker would you like rangers to bring in the covenanter, within reason mate?

09 Jun 2020 16:19:02
SGL, I'm glad you've followed Rangers for a while and I'm sure you will continue to do so. I can also say the same, My father took me to my first game when I was 4 and continue to follow follow. I am now 51. I also had the great pleasure of working with the head grounds man at Ibrox for 12 years. Keep following my friend.

09 Jun 2020 19:10:28
Good for you mate! 👍. My late grandmother was a 2nd cousin of rangers legendary player, manager and then director Willie Waddell. They originated from a wee village called the forth.

09 Jun 2020 19:14:44
SGL, are you sure it was called the Forth?

09 Jun 2020 20:01:47
Yes why my friend?

09 Jun 2020 23:56:27
It was called Forth all right and I also have connections with the village, my Grandfather was born there! As for all our backgrounds, I first saw Rangers in August 1958, which is almost 60 years of follow following. My mother was born in Paisley Road West and legend has it that my great grandfather on that side actually saw the team play at Kinning Park and was really put out when they moved along to Ibrox!

SGL, I tend not to get involved with speculation mate, although I will post wee snippets and rumours I hear occasionally. I prefer to wait until it is presented to us as a fait accompli, it's more exciting! However, any striker we do sign will be, I think, about two levels above those currently quoted on here.

10 Jun 2020 09:53:05
i was born in blackburn street in kinning park in 1948 and i don't remember ever been told they had played in kinning park, i am not saying it never happened but if anyone has any info on this i would be interested to know.

10 Jun 2020 12:37:35
True blue, we started at Glasgow green, move to Burnbank, Govan and thereafter played at Clydesdale cricket club, in kinning park. There after Cathkin park, then first ibrox before the first disaster.
It was extensively rebuilt and expanded on the site we occupy today.
