Kris started his senior career with Kilmarnock, before transferring to Rangers in January 2006, and was their top goalscorer in each of his first five seasons at Ibrox. He was the top goalscorer in the history of the then Scottish Premier League with 167 goals in total.
Boyd had a short spell in English football with Middlesbrough, during which time he was sent on loan to Nottingham Forest. He signed for Turkish club Eskisehirspor in 2011, before moving to Portland Timbers in the MLS in January 2012. He later returned to both Killie and Rangers. In June Boyd signed a 3 year deal to return to Killie for a third spell.
Boyd received his first cap for the senior Scottish national team in 2006. He has scored seven goals in eighteen appearances for his country.
His defining attribute is his strike rate. He scored an average of two goals every three games when he was at Rangers. He has scored over 250 goals throughout his whole footballing career.
Having finished 2017/18 as the Scottish Premiership's top goalscorer, he was nominated for PFA Scotland Players' Player of the Year. He could yet become Kilmarnock's all-time record scorer.BACK
