What if Boyd does go?

Scottish Premier Rangers

comment on the article

What will be your thoughts?

Would you feel he should have stayed on as the self professed fan and become a potential legend?

Would you feel he should at least have signed a contract so Rangers could get a fee for him?

Or would it really not be that bad, Wish him well and get another striker in with more in his locker?

Larsson was 5 times the player Boyd will ever be. Sure Boyd has scored more goals, has he not had 3 more seasons in the SPL than Larsson? I'd also like to see their assists compared. If Larsson wasn't scoring, he was setting them up. Besides, can you see Boyd coming from the subs bench and turning a Champions League Final? Ssshhhhh

i see you are still struggling with the fact that im not comparing their talent.

but if boyd shows a lack of ambition for staying in the SPL then why didnt larsson?

is it "shhhhh"?

Boyd has been consistently the best striker in the SPL for quite a few seasons. With respect to the SPL I don't think any team would be able to get a "striker with more in his locker". I seriously believe he would shine at any club. I'm not saying he should go but I'm disagreeing that he wouldn't be missed and that he wouldn't be any good at another club

Boyd will go out as a champ.

And all this stuff about Larrson.
At the same age as Boyd he hadnt even scored 100 goals.
Very good SPL player who got a bit part at Barca and ManU as a late developer

As a goalscorer Larsson was exceptional. However he is also remembered as the supreme diver - and it reflected badly on Celtic when this was dismissed as 'everybody does it'.

all this garbage about larsson changing the CL final.

the pass was meant to bypass larsson and go straight to the goalscorer but larsson tried to intervene.

luckily for barca the linesman didn't spot larsson's attempt to play the ball otherwise he would have flagged the goalscorer offside.

if the linesman had spotted larsson touching the ball then you certainly would be able to claim that the little diver had changed the CL final.

I can't believe that so many people disregard Boyds goal scoring ability. Sure he's not the quickest but he gets himself into the positions a top striker needs to in order to do what they are on the pitch to do.....Score goals!!

There seem to be far too many willing to let him go. How do you replace a guaranteed 20 + goals a season. To do so would require Rangers finding some gem via the youth accadamy or having 10 million + to spend on a proven striker which we all know is an impossibility. We must keep Boyd....Simple as that..

I couldn't agree more with Paul Ferguson,with Boyd in your team there is always a chance he will score and if he stays at Ibrox he will be come a legend,the only people who knock him are the ticky supporters because they fear his goal scoring power.We must keep Boyd...b-)
