Boyd was superb in their FA Cup win over Middlesbrough.
"If everyone was like George Boyd my job would be very, very easy," said Bruce. "Sometimes as a manager you have to make decisions that are ridiculous really but he's a great lad.
"He's fantastic to work with because he trains like he plays, he's effervescent. He just enjoys playing. Six years ago he was playing non-league and that's made him the humble lad that he is. I can't speak highly enough of him because he's a delight."
