Lyndon Dykes leaves Scotland teammates in stitches as he ‘channels Ronaldo’ with striking haircut

The Scots extended their lead at the top of their Euro 2024 qualifying group with Steve Clarke’s quick men’s brace.

They have accumulated nine points after winning all three opening games and are in an excellent position ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Georgia.

Dykes was the man of the hour long before he led Scotland to victory – and it seems he caught the eye BEFORE the big match in Oslo!

Teammate Scott McTominay took to Instagram to reveal Dyke’s rather eye-catching pre-game haircut.

And fans couldn’t help but notice the 27-year-old channeling a top 9 from the past – the iconic Brazilian Ronaldo cut of 2002.

In addition to photos of the big win, McTominay managed to record a short clip of Dykes getting his hair cut.

The Australian-born frontman can be seen wandering around with the eye-catching Ronaldo-esque cap – which of course was gone when he took the pitch at the Ullevaal Stadium!

And fans were quick to comment, saying, “No way R9 haircut,” while another added, “The original Ronaldo haircut.”

Another fan commented, “D9,” while one said, “Legends!”

Teammates John McGinn and Billy Gilmour also saw the funny side as they commented with laughing emojis.

The forward recovered from pneumonia in March this year but came back strong and was a key part of the country’s recent success, scoring once and providing two assists in their last three games.

He hopes to help Scotland maintain their 100 per cent start in Group A and take another step towards the European Championship when Georgia visits Hampden on Tuesday.

And captain Andy Robertson says the side must qualify after such a strong start in the group.

He said: “We couldn’t have started better with nine points out of nine and we’re ahead.

“But now we have to use that to our advantage and qualify now.

“That puts us under pressure, but I want to go to Germany.

“We have to try to finish the whole thing with 12 points. I hope the crowd on Tuesday is lively and always behind us.

“They pushed us forward against Norway, we had so many fans there and we need the same against Georgia to try and get another win.”
