Kris Boyd Biography
Kris Boyd (born 18 August 1983) is a Scottish professional footballer who is currently playing for Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer. Boyd grew up in the Ayrshire village of Tarbolton and started his senior career with Kilmarnock. He transferred to Rangers in January 2006, and was Rangers' top goalscorer in each of his seasons at Ibrox. He is presently the highest goalscorer in the history of the Scottish Premier League, with 164 goals in total.
Boyd had a short unsuccessful spell in English football with Middlesbrough, during which time he was sent on loan to Nottingham Forest. He signed for Turkish club Eskiehirspor in 2011.
Having played several games for the Scotland U21 and Scotland B teams, Boyd received his first cap for the senior Scottish national team in 2006. He has scored seven goals in sixteen appearances for the senior national side, though withdrew from the team in 2008 and only made himself available for selection again after George Burley's departure as manager.
On 23 January 2012, Boyd declined a contract offer from Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo. Boyd instead signed with Portland Timbers of MLS on 30 January 2012, becoming the club's second Designated Player. As Houston held exclusive rights within MLS to negotiate with Boyd, Portland were forced to trade a first-round pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft to the Dynamo for the right to sign him.
Boyd scored his first goal for the Timbers on 4 March 2012 during a pre-season exhibition against AIK of Sweden. Eight days later, Boyd made his league debut in their season opener, where he scored Timbers' second goal of a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union.
