Boyd apologises for bust up with Rangers boss

Rangers striker Kris Boyd was sent packing from training after receiving a dressing down from Gers boss Walter Smith over his attitude at being dropped for Sunday's Homecoming Scottish Cup win over Hamilton. The former Kilmarnock striker returned to training on Wednesday, where he cleared the air with Smith.

"When I look back on it now, I feel in this instance that I have let myself down," Boyd told the Scottish Sun.

"I just took it that missing out on the Hamilton game would mean I was out of the cup final.

"I am desperate to play, all I want to do is win trophies and score for Rangers.

"I met the manager, I apologised and we shook hands.

"He assured me that is the end of the matter. I am happy with that.

"The whole incident has been blown out of proportion.

"This sort of thing happens day in, day out at every club.

"The way I behaved was simply down to the deep disappointment at not starting and what I thought it would mean.

"I'm not the sort of player who wants to sit and take the money at Rangers and not to play. That's not me.

"All I want to do is get my head down and train, and give the manager a decision to make."
