BOYD IN CONTRACT TALKS

0

KRIS BOYD will hold talks with manager Steve Clarke to discuss his future at Kilmarnock.

The 35-year-old former Rangers striker is in his third spell at Rugby Park, but his contract is due to expire next month.

Clarke has guided Killie into third place in the Premiership, ahead of Aberdeen on goal difference, but Boyd has not always been a starter.

The veteran hitman, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “The most important thing for the football club right now is to finish in third place.

“It has been a bit of a stop-start season for me. I will speak with the manager this week and see what’s what in terms of plans going forward.

“My body still feels fine. I feel I can contribute. I am somebody that wants to be playing regular football at this age.

“If it is not at Kilmarnock, I might need to look elsewhere.”

Although Boyd has not started a game since April 6, when he scored a penalty in a 2-0 win over St Johnstone for his sixth goal of the season, he insists he is happy.

He added: “I am enjoying the run we are on at Kilmarnock, even though I have not been playing.

“It is good to be part of a successful Kilmarnock team at this moment in time.

“Maybe because it is the first time in my career that I am not playing, I am adjusting to not playing.

“It is a conversation I will have with the manager before I decide what I am going to do.”

Clarke faces a season of change at Rugby Park with Jordan Jones heading for Rangers after agreeing a pre-contract in January and midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu will return to Celtic when his loan period expires.

Goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann, who has been linked with the Ibrox side, is also poised to go back to parent club Watford.
