Video: Kris Boyd Breaks Down Kilmarnock’s Shock Europa League Exit

Kris Boyd has broken down Kilmarnock‘s shock Europa League exit at the hands of Connah’s Quay Nomads.

And it doesn’t make for good viewing.

The Rugby Park side bowed out of the competition at the first qualifying stage last night after losing 3-2 on aggregate to the Welsh side.

Killie had led 2-1 in the tie following last week’s first leg in Wales, but lost 2-0 last night for a shock exit.

It was Angelo Alessio’s second game in charge and means he’ll now be under pressure going into the start of the Scottish Premiership season.

For Boyd, he believes Kilmarnock weren’t victims of a ‘smash and grab’ and have to decide on the way they want to play moving forward.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Boyd said:

Boyd was part of the Killie squad that achieved a third place finish in the Scottish Premiership last season and secured European football.

He retired earlier this summer so was watching on a supporter last night.
