The Queens Park Rangers striker saw his first-half effort against Israel saved by former Hibs goalkeeper Ofir Marciano on Saturday night.Dykes recovered from the setback to score Scotland’s second equaliser in the epic 3-2 win. However, Clarke isn’t willing to allow the striker to redeem himself from the spot anytime soon.

Former Hoops forward Darren Jackson admits he was “surprised” to see Lyndon Dykes join QPR in summer 2020 rather than Old Firm giants Celtic or Rangers, speaking to Sky Sports. He may not be the most technically gifted number nine but use Dykes correctly and you have one heck of an effective frontman on your hands. “I raved about ( Dykes ) when I went to watch him at Livingston. I was surprised he didn’t move to one of the Old Firm but they chose not to take him and he’s gone down south,” says Jackson , the 1998 Scottish Premiership champion.

Dykes , who scored in consecutive games for Scotland over the international break, moved to QPR in summer 2020. At the same time, the Hoops brought in Albian Ajeti for considerably more.

Dykes signed for English side QPR in 2020, whilst Celtic instead opted for West Ham flop Albian Ajeti – paying more than QPR did for Dykes – with Dykes having gone on to star in the Championship and for his country.

Although born down under, Dykes was eligible to star for Scotland on the international stage and has gone on to do just that, managing to score in consecutive World Cup qualifying games for Scotland.

With 4 in his last 4 games for Scotland [via Transfermarkt], the Australian-born ex-Livingston striker has proven his capabilities for his country. For QPR, his record remains reasonably prolific too – in the Championship with QPR, he has scored 16 goals in his 53 outings for the R’s.

Darren Jackson, speaking to Sky Sports, is confused by Celtic and Rangers’ decision not to move for the striker.

The ex-Hoops star said [via Sky Sports]:

“ “I raved about him when I went to watch him at Livingston. I was surprised he didn’t move to one of the Old Firm, but they chose not to take him and he’s gone down south.”

““He’s not just a big striker, he’s mobile.”

““You see the two goals he’s scored, getting across people, he’s mobile in the box as well. He doesn’t just stand as a big striker, his movement in the box is good. I think he’s a fantastic player.””

As both consistent and home-grown, Dykes would have been an attractive proposition who has proven he can cut it for club and country.

Instead, the burden is on the likes of Giakoumakis and Furuhashi to continue their form (in the case of the latter) or to step up when given the chance for the former, in order to nullify the opportunity cost of letting Dykes slip.
