Everton's Naismith: Kilmarnock's Boyd can win player of the year

Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd has a good chance of winning this season's PFA Scotland Player of the Year award.

The 30-year old has returned to Rugby Park in fine fettle, scoring 18 goals for Killie this campaign, and is in the running to take out the Professional Footballers' Association gong.

Boyd is up against the likes of Celtic stars Kris Commons, Fraser Forster and Virgil van Dijk for the prize and has caught the eye of former Rangers colleague Steven Naismith, who helped Everton teammate Aiden McGeady launch the award this week.

"You would have to consider Kris Boyd for Player of the Year because he has been scoring so many valuable goals for Kilmarnock while they've been having a disappointing season," he said.

"But Celtic running away with the league and Kris Commons's goals put him out in front."

Boyd has scored almost half of Killie's league goals this season in what has been a brilliant return to the club where he kicked off his professional career back in 2000.
