It looks as if Rangers will kick-start your weekend with the long awaited signing of Kris Boyd on Friday. Scott Burns, a reporter for The Daily Express, who has been at the forefront of this developing story claimed late Thursday night that a deal between Boyd & Rangers is done.
Burns went on to explain that the delay came down to Graham Wallace & Boyd’s agent hammering out the details of the contract- but that “everything is now agreed” & that the club will make an official announcement once the results from Boyd’s medical are confirmed.
The contract is expected to be for one year with an option for a second year accompanied by increased wages if Rangers earn promotion.
Boyd was also being courted by Aberdeen, Dundee United, Kilmarnock, & the French club Nîmes Olympique.
Boyd’s signing will firmly establish Rangers as the favorites to win the Championship this season & will automatically raise the speculation that players currently on the squad may be shopped out to lessen the budgetary hit that Boyd & Kenny Miller have now added to the books.
Burns also reported that signing Cardiff City’s Don Cowie is Ally McCoist’s next priority but that Wallace isn’t as keen as McCoist on such a move.
