Confusion Over Boyd Future & Gers Face Tough Jambos Clash

The rumours surrounding the future of Kris Boyd couldn’t have came at a worse time for Rangers manager Walter Smith as he prepares his injury-hit squad for the upcoming SPL match against in-form Hearts on Saturday.

According to sources at Sky Sports, Kris Boyd is in talks with both Aston Villa and Birmingham over a pre-contract agreement that would see the influential Rangers striker depart Ibrox at the end of the season. Boyd has scored 19 goals so far this season but has supplied a number of chances for Kenny Miller due to his improved technical skills outside the box. Despite being offered a new contract by Rangers, Boyd could be on the verge of rejecting the deal for a move to the English Premiership.

The nightmare that Rangers didn’t want to think about, is now becoming a reality.

It stinks of a real lack of ambition for me. Kris Boyd has significantly improved his overall performances and he has managed to keep his sensational goal record. Honestly, I don’t think there are any better “goalscoring” strikers in the UK. There isn’t even a debate about whether Rangers will get a replacement: there is no money, we don’t have a scouting system and the future of the club is in huge doubt.

Walter Smith has to ignore the Boyd stories ahead of Saturday’s clash with Hearts as Rangers look set to field pretty much a 2nd string team. Kris Boyd, Kenny Miller, Nacho Novo, Steven Naismith, DaMarcus Beasley, Andrius Velicka, Kyle Lafferty and Madjid Bougherra are all either unavaliable or could be unavaliable. A boost for Rangers is that Pedro Mendes could return to the team for Rangers, but to be fair, midfield isn’t a position Rangers have many problems with.

Our opponents Hearts are on a decent run of form with 6 games unbeaten under Csaba Laszlo. Laszlo has a few injury problems of his own, but with a solid defence, the Gers could find it difficult to break down Hearts with such a make-shift attack. The bonus for Rangers is that on the other hand Hearts don’t score many goals either and that could be crucial in the final result. With the confusion over the future of Boyd and the future of Rangers, there will be an air of anxiety at the game on Saturday and for that reason I wouldn’t rule out Hearts taking anything from Ibrox. Prediction though, I will go 2-1 Rangers.

    This is about the worst thing that could happen. Hopefully Rangers will keep Boyd from transferring to Villa because he’s the best thing going in the SPL right now.
