Rangers Boyd still on Birmingham radar

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish has confirmed the Blues are still interested in Rangers striker Kris Boyd. Former Gers boss McLeish moved for the free-scoring frontman last month, only for the club's bid to be knocked back by the SPL leaders.

Boyd is available for free at the end of the season and McLeish has confirmed he still wants to secure his signature.

"I asked the question of Rangers," confirmed McLeish.

"But Walter Smith said he was going to keep everybody until the end of the season.

"There are other clubs in for him but we will pursue that avenue."

McLeish also confirmed he made a verbal offer for Celtic winger Aiden McGeady, a move that was also rejected.

"Did we make a bid?" he continued. "It was verbal."
