It looks as though Boyd is finally on his way. I neither rate him as a player nor a person. On the pitch he contributes little other than his goals. His goals only come about because that is all he wants to do. Give Papac an opportunity up front, tell him to do nothing other than be in a position to shoot for goal, and he'll probably get as many goals as Boyd does.
When Boyd is on the pitch, Rangers are effectively a man down. He never chases down the ball, his first touch is atrocious, his pace is shocking for a professional of his age and his passing is abysmal.
His attitude is also poor. I don't blame him for refusing to sign a contract for less money than he is currently on. However, if he was thought of so highly by the Ranger's management team, then they would pull out all stops to keep him at Rangers. The fact that they are not suggests that they do not rate him at all and feel that he does not have the correct attitude to improve. His attitude towards Scotland also stinks. Refusing to play simply because of Burley is just vindictive and has undermined the Scotland manager. I don't think Burley is the right man, but he has not been helped by Boyd's prima donna antics. The problem with Boyd is that he believes his own hype. He thinks that he does not have to try any harder because he's scored a few goals against mediocre opposition.
I'll be glad to see the back of him.
