McLeish weighs up move for Boyd

Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish is considering a bid for Rangers striker Kris Boyd.

The Championship side are keen to bolster their forward line, with Garry O'Connor sidelined by injury and Quincy Owusu-Abeyie's loan period ending.

Boyd, 25, is the top scorer in the Scottish Premier League with 18 goals.

McLeish signed Boyd from Kilmarnock during his time in charge of Rangers and also capped the forward when manager of Scotland.

Cardiff City failed with a £2.5m bid for Boyd in the summer but the player recently revealed that he had considered leaving Ibrox.

He was frustrated at being overlooked for key matches last term but his form this season has been impressive.

Rangers manager Walter Smith has made no secret of the need to prune his squad. However, it would be a major surprise if he elected to sell his leading scorer.
