Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd has hinted that he may hang his boots up in the summer when his Kilmarnock contract ends after a goal-laden career.

The veteran striker is in his third spell at Rugby Park but has struggled for regular games this season – despite finishing last season as top goalscorer in the Scottish Premiership.

Boyd also thinks his media work could get in the way of a move elsewhere – but insists that he hasn’t made his mind up about his future yet.

“I don’t know what I want to do yet. This season has been frustrating,” Boyd told the Scottish Sun.

“To go from being the top scorer in the league last season to being out of the team has been very difficult for me to take because I haven’t been one over my career who has been in and out of the team.

“I have been at a certain level for a number of years and I don’t want to go down the leagues.


“Kilmarnock have been brilliant for me. To go to another club, in terms of media work and things like that, it might not be the in thing.”

Boyd initially broke through with Kilmarnock before signing for Rangers in 2006 and scored a total of 138 goals for the Light Blues.

He returned to Rugby Park for a further two spells, first in 2013 and then again in 2015, with a second stint at Ibrox sandwiched in between.

Boyd won two league titles, two Scottish Cups and two League Cups with the Gers and also had spells with Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Eskisehispor and Portland Timbers before returning to Scotland in 2013.
