Kris Boyd reacts quickly to wage drop threat
Kris Boyd has been quick to knock back the prospect of a wage restructure with Rangers.
Kris Boyd will not accept a deal from Rangers which would see him on a “pay per play” deal, according to reports in the BBC today.
The hugely successful Rangers hitman is not seen as a high priority player and the club have said that he is likely to be offered a “new deal but not on the same basic wage”.
But Boyd is apparently unwilling to accept the reduced terms while his stock remains high, with other clubs tempted by his prolific goal-scoring record with the Scottish giants.
He has scored over 100 goals since arriving from Kilmarnock in January 2006 becoming the second highest ever scorer in the SPL behind Henrik Larsson.
Boyd, who earns less than his strike partners Kenny Miller and Kyle Lafferty, has been courted by a number of clubs during his time at Rangers.
He rejected a £3.8million move to Birmingham in January and more recently turned down £50,000 a week with Turkish side Trabzonspor. He was also linked with German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin
With his contract expiring at the end of this season Boyd will be free to move clubs on a Bosman. He will be able to negotiate a deal from January onwards.
Meanwhile Boyd is waiting to find out if the clash of heads during the Old Firm match on Sunday has left him with a fractured eye socket which would keep him out of action for weeks.
