Kris Boyd puts the boot into Aberdeen

Kris Boyd has been causing all sorts of problems in the Scottish media recently.

From Brendan Rodgers to Tam McManus, the big striker has been firmly planting the boot. You get the feeling he’s having a good laugh doing it too.

Boyd’s been pretty ruthless recently and he took it to the next level against Aberdeen. He claimed that the Dons fans couldn’t behave themselves and weren’t worthy of the late kick off.

The ex-Rangers striker also said it’s a decision that the police would be happy about and said the club’s fan’s hatred towards the Ibrox club was “truly staggering”.

Boyd having none of semi final fiasco reaction

The big striker didn’t let up in his assessment of the Dons. Aberdeen supporters have been complaining about the early kick off time for the Scottish League Cup semi final at Hampden.

The club released a statement saying the decision to play both games at Hampden on the same day is ludicrous and doesn’t suit fans.

Kris Boyd was having none of it.

“Aberdeen, especially, have a cheek,” said Boyd. “It’s the police who want their match with Rangers done and dusted because a minority among the Dons fans cannot behave themselves.”

“Police would prefer they didn’t have them for a 7.45pm kick-off. And even if the start had been later, they’d have moaned about that too because it would have meant getting back to the Granite City in the early hours of Monday morning.

“I’ve been there with Dons supporters. Their hatred for Rangers is truly staggering.”

Ouch. Boyd also sees no problem with the scheduling, which largely suits the Old Firm teams. In fact, he said let’s embrace the unique decision.

Boyd said, “Is it not a good thing that our two biggest clubs are involved in the group stages of the Europa League?

So let’s embrace it. Let’s welcome the fact that our four best teams can create history on October 28. Let’s treat it as Super Sunday.”
