Boyd Is Back!

Written by 

RANGERS Football Club can today confirm the signing of Kris Boyd on a one-year deal.

The 30-year-old striker successfully completed his medical at Murray Park this morning and can now look forward to a second spell with the Light Blues having previously signed for the club from Kilmarnock in January 2006.

In four-and-a-half years Boyd netted a remarkable 101 league goals in 143 appearances working under Alex McLeish, Paul Le Guen and Walter Smith at Ibrox, a record which helped him become the SPL's all-time leading scorer.

With 18 caps and seven goals for the Scotland national team, he left Rangers in the summer of 2010 and went on to play for Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forrest on loan, Eskişehirspor in Turkey and MLS side Portland Timbers before returning to Kilmarnock in February 2013.

This proved to be the perfect move for Boyd who enjoyed a terrific season at Rugby Park in 2013/14. He netted 22 goals to help Killie retain their Premiership status and was on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Having already won two Scottish Premier League titles and two Scottish Cup and two League Cup winners medals the prolific forward is now targeting further success with Rangers.

He said: “I’m thrilled to be back, I’m a Rangers fan and I know everything about the club. I’m really looking forward to the new season and it will be a tough but exciting challenge.

“In football it’s strange because you never know what can happen but as soon as I knew there was a bit of interest in me from Rangers there was only one place I was going.”

Rangers Manager Ally McCoist said: "We’re delighted to announce that Kris has signed a one-year deal with us this morning.

“We’ve been speaking to him for a few days now and he obviously showed a great desire to come back and we were very keen for him to come back. It’s great news for the club."
