Rangers fans have hit back at Kris Boyd over his criticism of his old club’s ‘insulting and unsettling’ approach to signing players in Scotland.
The Kilmarnock striker was speaking yesterday after picking up the Scottish Premiership Player of the Month award for December.
Given Boyd’s role as a pundit and player in the Scottish game, it was no surprise that the subject of his former club and their January transfer dealings was brought up.
They yesterday completed the loan signing of Jason Cummings, but news also broke that they’d had a bid for Boyd’s teammate Jordan Jones thrown out by Kilmarnock due to it not meeting the Rugby Park outfit’s valuation of the player.
Steve Clarke – who picked up the Manager of the Month award – said it was an easy decision for Killie as the bid was a ‘long long way short of the mark’.
And Boyd followed that up by saying Rangers’ approach to signing several players in Scottish football over the past year has been ‘insulting’ and they should be paying the going rate rather than unsettling talent in other teams.
Rangers had several bids for Jamie Walker thrown out in the summer and reports say that Hamilton have also rejected an opening offer for Greg Docherty because the price isn’t right.
But Gers fans certainly don’t agree with Boyd – and they’ve been only too willing to share that on Twitter:
Rangers fans – are you confident of signing Jones during this window?
