Third time lucky for new signing Boyd
KRIS BOYD is ready to renew his relationship with Kilmarnock after reportedly agreeing a two-year deal with the Rugby Park club.
The former Rangers striker would become Gary Locke’s fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Scott Robinson, Jamie MacDonald and Kallum Higginbotham.
It would be the third time Boyd has been on Kilmarnock’s books.
Boyd was one of 11 players surplus to requirements at Ibrox as Mark Warburton began his rebuilding work as Rangers manager.
Meanwhile, former Rangers player Madjid Bougherra has revealed he offered to return to Ibrox this summer to end his playing career, but was rejected. The Algerian captain spent a turbulent three-year period at Ibrox from 2008 before moving in a £1.7 million deal to Qatari club Lekhwiya.
He moved on to UAE outfit Al-Fujairah last year and was out of contract at the end of the season.
Bougherra said: “My wish was to go back to Rangers and finish my career there. I was out of contract and my dream would have been to play again with Rangers. Sadly, it was not possible for that to happen.”
