QPR manager Mark Warburton is predicting a big summer for Lyndon Dykes with Scotland at Euro 2020.
The striker has notched a goal or an assist in eight consecutive matches as his goal tally for the season at QPR following a transfer from Livingston reaches double figures. He has been linked with moves elsewhere ahead of leading the line for Scotland at Euro 2020 this summer.
It hasn’t been plain-sailing for Dykes at QPR but Warburton believes he’s got a huge summer ahead of him with Steve Clarke’s side (Daily Mail): “For me, there is no doubt about what Lyndon can achieve. He can go and play at a much higher level — at the highest level.
“He is still a young guy catching up with the academy education he never had. But he has shown the outstanding work ethic that will get him there. And what a summer he has in front of him with Scotland. He has had a lot to deal with in terms of development, barren patches and criticism.
“He’s also had to deal with the demands of the Championship where every game is a challenge. It’s not a league where you can rest a couple of players and think you will be fine, because anyone can beat anyone. Half the teams in the league or more will have budgets as big as Rangers or Celtic, so it’s a big, high-intensity, demanding league.”
Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign kicks off next month at Hampden Park against Czech Republic on June 14th, Clarke’s final squad to be submitted for the tournament by June 1st.
