Kris Boyd: I really didn’t enjoy last season with Rangers

Kris Boyd has criticised the behind the scenes running of Rangers.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Kris Boyd has given a damning indictment of his time at Rangers following his departure from the club.

Boyd said: “I can say quite honestly that I didn’t really enjoy last season as a whole at Rangers. It wasn’t a good place or environment to be in. There was so much in-fighting around the club.

“For instance, why did Dave King do that press conference, in which he had a go at some former players, when he was already due to announce a new manager the following week?”

The striker left Ibrox at the end of last season, and recently agreed a deal to re-sign with Kilmarnock - for what will be his third spell at the club.

The 31-year-old struggled to have an impact with the Gers last term, failing to live up to his goalscoring reputation, and netting just 12 goals across the entire campaign. He was one of the main players who was considered central to their struggles, and it was no surprise that he was released at the end of his contract.

The criticisms of the environment at Rangers are ones that have been heard many times in recent years, and Dave King did make a bold move in openly deriding a select group of players following his takeover of the club.

However, it appears as if some of these issues have been left in the past, and following the appointment of Mark Warburton as manager, and the promise of a new season, it appears as if Rangers can start working their way back to the top of Scottish football.
