LIVINGSTON striker Lyndon Dykes says he is confident that he could handle the increase in standards that a move to Rangers would bring.

The 24-year-old has been the subject of rampant speculation linking him with a move to Ibrox as Steven Gerrard begins the process of overhauling his squad for the upcoming season.

The Livi centre-forward recently died his hair blue, leading some to suggest that a deal to bring him to Glasgow's south side was imminent.

Dykes has been keeping quiet about the potential move but has now broken his silence, insisting that he would back himself to succeed at Rangers if they were to make their move for him.

Speaking to PLZ Soccer, he said: "I don’t see why I couldn’t step into a club like Rangers, obviously they are a massive club in Scotland.

"I back myself 100 per cent and if I did happen to go anywhere I would do the best I can, learn off the players they have, the manager and once I got in that environment I’d put my head down, work hard and be the striker the club needs or the position the manager needs."
