Rangers not planning to sell Boyd

Rangers striker Kris Boyd

Boyd was Rangers' top scorer last season with 25 goals

Rangers manager Walter Smith says the Ibrox club have no imminent plans to sell Scotland striker Kris Boyd.

Boyd, 25, struggled to gain a regular starting place last season and was the subject of a failed bid by Cardiff City earlier this month.

"We've never said we would to let him go," said Smith, who has signed three more strikers during the summer.

"Clubs are free to bid for a player, but it's not always the case that we're prepared to let him go."

Rangers have recently bolstered their strike force with the signings of Kenny Miller and Kyle Lafferty, while Andrius Velicka is due to join in July.

Smith has hinted that he is keen to do more business in the transfer market this summer.

"The transfer deadline's got two months to go yet, so there's bound to be a bit of movement here and there," he said.

But assistant manager Ally McCoist insists that the purchase of three new strikers is not a reflection on Boyd.

"We've got even more competition for places," he said. "But if Kris Boyd does what he's good at then it'll be very difficult to keep him out.

"It does give us one or two options now, but we're not necessarily looking to move people on straight away.

"Kris Boyd is the best finisher in the country. Why would you want to get rid of him?"


Well, am quite happy
