Lyndon Dykes is a Ranger!

LYNDON Dykes has joined QPR from Livingston for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old striker has signed a four-year deal with the R’s.

Dykes, who was Livingston’s top goalscorer in the SPL last season, is now looking forward to getting started in west London.

“I’m buzzing, obviously!” he said. “Being at Livingston was great but to be at a club like this, I just want to put my head down now and kick on.

“I am a player who works hard for the team. I like to work hard for my team-mates, I want them to know that I’m putting it in for them. I am always going to give 100%.

“I am always willing to learn and hopefully I can score a few goals as well.”

Dykes is also relishing the physicality of the English Championship, adding: “That’s not a worry for me!

“I like that side of the game sometimes – I’m willing to get in there and rough some people up!”

Mark Warburton has handed his new signing the No.9 shirt, and Dykes admitted: “It’s great as a striker when you are given that.

“It’s a big thing and I am keen to get that shirt on and get out playing.”

R’s boss Warburton said: “I am delighted, delighted!

“He is a player who can score goals and he showed his quality against Rangers and Celtic last season.

“He is a hard worker, a good finisher and I think he is going to go on to become a good international for Scotland.”

Warburton also believes Dykes is a player who can grow in the coming years, adding: “He is still young and raw, and there is a lot of development potential in him.

“A lot of good work has been done and he has worked very hard in Scotland, and we hope very much that we can help him move to the next level.”

I like to work hard for my team-mates, I want them to know that I’m putting it in for them.
