DARRELL KING: Hitman Kris has earned a new contract

The issue of contracts is one, among certainothers, that has dominated headlines coming from Ibrox in recent weeks.

Now that the managerial team’s situation has been clarified, until a new buyer arrives – whenever that may be – the focus of contractual matters has turned onto the players.

Six Rangers stars are in the last six months of their deals; but only one occupies the thoughts of every Rangers fan.

Kris Boyd, the great enigma, as he has so often been labelled. For me, there is no real enigma. He scores goals, plenty of them, and should be secured on a new deal as quickly as possible.

If the most recent soundbites are accurate, there has been a relaxation of the financial noose placed around Ibrox by the banks.

To such an extent that talks with the representatives of Boyd, Nacho Novo, Kirk Broadfoot, Davie Weir, Stevie Smith and DaMarcus Beasley will soon begin.

Boyd’s agent, Mark Donaghy, should be the first one in the door at Murray Park – as a matter or urgency.

Firstly, his client is absolutely right to demand parity with those at the club who take home much more on a weekly basis than he does, yet contribute far less.

Only Boyd, the club and Donaghy know the fine details of his wage, but if we are to believe some of the figures, he earns around £9000 a week.

Those were the figures mentioned a year ago when Birmingham came in and tried to lure him south after Rangers accepted a bid in excess of £3million for his services, only for the wage packet on offer to fall short and scupper the deal.

At the weekend, just before he blasted home another double to take his SPL goals tally to 153 – now just five behind Henrik Larsson’s record – Boyd was being linked with moves to Turkey, Spain, Germany and England. Given his goals haul, that is not surprising.

But the real issue here is about Boyd and Rangers. A decision has to be made, and straight questions asked. Do you want to stay? How much are you offering?

For me, it’s that simple. Here we have a dyed-in-the-wool Rangers fan who loves playing for the club and his goals, no matter the holes people want to pick in his record, are crucial.

Take him out of the side, even with money to replace him, and where would Rangers’ title defence be?

I think, if the money is right, Boyd’s first option would be to stay. He is settled, as is his family, and he knows the beat he pounds every week.

He still has time to move away in the future and be a success trying something else.

All he has to do to see evidence of that is look at his pal Barry Ferguson thriving on a new lease of life at Birmingham.

Rangers, then, ought to show Boyd the money. A decent contract, given that it’s the most important of his life so far, should be offered to a player who deserves huge praise for the way he has kept going, despite all the knocks to his confidence.

darrell is spot on give boyd a 3 year deal worth 12 grand a week and everybody will be happy

Think Boydy will be after nearer to £20k a week and hes worth it (tu)

He will be getting offers of 20-30k from England which we cant match. If he wants to stay its simple Kris, just sign on for less at the club you love..... Show your different from Hutton

That £9k a week (lots by most standards) but for a player like Boyd easily beaten elsewhere! Now his love of Rangers will be used against him to keep his wage lower than he deserves but IF he decides to cash in the 'relatively' low wage he is on and the lure of what he could get would make even the most ardent fan consdier moving for his own long term good. I hope we make him a decent offer!

He'll get nowhere near £20k a week.

Think he'll be leavin then (td)

If he stays I think he'll be on roughly half of what he would get elsewhere tbh.

Cant see Hull or Newcastle offering him that much

£15K is more like it

100% spot on, Im afraid I dont think we can afford to keep him as he will get offesr from England way in excess of what we can afford.

no chance mate, he has no transfer fee...think of this, Birmingham were willing to pay Rangesr 3.5 Million for him and then pay 15k a week for him which over a four year deal is another 3.2 Million = 6.7 Million outlay, clubs no longer need to pay a fee so the transfer fee can be pushed onto the players wages. Over a 4 year deal at Birmingham they were willing to shell out 32k a week (6.7 million over 4 years) last year on a deal for Boyd. With no transfer fee now the wages in offer to him will now be 25-30 k which is why we will likely be priced out a deal

To be fair to Hutton, he was shoved out the door. He would have signed a new contract with us for much less than was on offer at Spurs had he not been booted out.

Tell me you didnt swallow that line! Did you know he signed a document with Spurs agreeing wages 4 months befotre he signed for them?

That post has as much credence as your claim.

Proof?

Kris Boyd's love for the club should not be held against him when negotiating a new contract. Who says he does not deserve parity with the likes of Mendes simply because he is a Rangers man. Load of bollocks. Celtic done this years ago with Jackie McNamara expecting him to sign year after year for whatever they offered him cause he loved Celtic and eventually his patience ran out knowing there were greater riches elsewhere. We short change Boyd and he'll gladly take £30k off someone else down south!!!

I don't think anyone's wanting to short change him because he's a Rangers man, I think they're just being realistic about our financial situation.

Yes we have to be realistic but if we let the likes of Steven Smith go who is out of contract and I am undecided about Novo, Kirk and Beas as to whether they can earn new deals then some of that cash can finance the Boyd deal. Speculate to accumulate!!!

The difference was celtic had the money to spend on McNamara at that point, a luxury we don't have at the moment.

Mendes was signed when we had money to spend, as was Lafferty. We would not be paying them those kind of wages if we were to sign them today.

Hull pay Jimmy Bullard £40k+ per week. If they feel Boyd's goals'll keep them up, they'll pay £30k no problem at all.

from a very good source, pay close attention to the court case Hutton had with his agent. how anyone can claim he was pushed is laughable. He had years left on his contract and it was the players choice to see out the deal. His agen had been working VERY hard the 6 months before he left to get a deal in the premiership.
