Boyd forced to have surgery

12 Jan 2010 - 08:37:33

Rangers could be without leading scorer Kris Boyd for a month following surgery on a hernia problem.

Boyd failed to complete Sunday's Scottish Cup fourth round tie with Hamilton Academical and has been told he needs to go under the knife to cure a long-running problem.

Rangers are also currently without the services of suspended striker partner Kenny Miller.

"Kris Boyd has problems with his groin," explained assistant manager Ally McCoist following the 3-3 draw at New Douglas Park.

"Although the pitch was okay you could see a few players were slipping and I think it had an effect on his groin.

"He has been feeling some discomfort there for a few weeks and he felt them sore so we had to take him off as precaution more than anything else."

Boyd has been prolific for the Gers this season after scoring 19 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions.

He has recently opened negotiations over a new contract to extend his stay at Ibrox past the end of the current season.
