Portland Timbers new boy Boyd gutted for old Rangers mates

Upon jetting out to the USA to start the next phase of his playing career, Kris Boyd could not help feel for his former club Rangers.

The Glasgow giants are experiencing plenty of difficulty after being forced into administration last week and prior to leaving for new club Portland Timbers yesterday, Boyd spoke of the current situation at Ibrox and how he is gutted for his old mates.

"What's been happening at Rangers has been shocking," he told SunSport.

"I still can't get my head around it to be honest.

"I spent last week trying to organise things for my move to the States but all I could think about was the people at Rangers.

"Even as I drove to Glasgow Airport I passed Ibrox and I thought to myself: 'What's coming next?'

"I'm excited about playing in America, I can't wait to get out there and get started.

"But I'm still thinking about the lads and staff at Rangers and what they're all going through right now.

"I'm good friends with a lot of the boys and I know for a fact they're all hurting. In Allan McGregor, Lee McCulloch, Kirk Broadfoot and Steve Davis we're talking about real Rangers men."
