Walter’s future will dictate Boyd deal

Kris Boyd has revealed his decision to sign a new contract with Rangers will be heavily influenced by Walter Smith’s future at the club.

The striker is out of contract at the end of the season and a question mark also hangs over Smith's future at Ibrox.

Asked whether Smith remaining at Rangers would affect his own decision to sign a new deal, Boyd admitted: “It would have a big influence in it.

“I've said before that he is a manager I wanted to play under and a manager who has shown faith in me.”
