Kilmarnock want departing Rangers striker Kris Boyd, reveals Gary Locke

Outgoing Rangers striker Kris Boyd is on the radar of Scottish Premiership outfit Kilmarnock.

Scottish Premiership outfit Kilmarnock are interested in signing Kris Boyd from Rangers in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Record.

It has been reported by the Scottish newspaper that Kilmarnock have made the 31-year-old striker their “top summer signing target”.

Killie manager Gary Locke has already contacted Boyd, who is out of contract at Rangers at the end the month.

The former Middlesbrough striker will not be offered a new contract by the Gers, but it seems that he is still rated highly by some in the Scottish game.

“I’ve had a couple of conversations with Kris and I hope to speak to him again,” Locke told The Daily Record.

“He has enjoyed his two previous spells at Kilmarnock and he’d play on a regular basis and get goals for us.”

Boyd returned to his former club Rangers in the summer of 2014, but he endured a tough second spell at Ibrox.

The Gers have failed to get promoted from the Scottish Championship to the Premiership, losing 6-1 on aggregate to Motherwell in the playoff final.

Meanwhile, Kilmarnock finished 10th in the Scottish top flight with 41 points from 38 matches.
