Celtic in shock move for Rangers Boyd
Hoops chiefs will match the £30,000 a week on offer from Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish.
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell is ready to splash out a £1million signing-on fee to persuade Boyd to turn his back on Gers and sign for their biggest rivals.
Lawwell has been in touch with the player's camp over the last week and has refused to let his pursuit of prolific striker Boyd drop.
The 26 year old, who scored 26 goals for the SPL champs last season, is fully aware of the repercussions of agreeing to swap the Light Blues for the Hoops.
