Kris Boyd has told Aberdeen that they can’t stand in Derek McInnes’ path of moving to Sevco.
The obsessed Kilmarnock striker seems to see his various media roles as an outlet to promote all things Ibrox related regardless of the issues involved.
With Sky Sports, the BBC and The Sun all offering Boyd a platform his dislike of Aberdeen, a well run and solvent club comes over on an almost daily basis.
Perhaps soon Boyd can give us his take on Sevco’s recently published but hushed up accounts or on the Court of Session hearing regarding Dave King’s concert party take-over.
After being sacked by Bristol City Aberdeen offered McInnes a route back into management.
It has been useful for both parties but now without any mention of compensation Boyd feels that the Dons are obliged to release McInnes.
In The Sun he explains: “Let’s get it right; he’s on the verge of leaving Aberdeen for Rangers because it’s a bigger and better club. That’s just a fact.
“There is absolutely no comparison when it comes to size and stature. Aberdeen hate Rangers but they’re not close as football clubs.
“I’m just not having this idea that Del is guilty of letting Aberdeen down. For me, it’s the other way around. He can walk out of Pittodrie with his head held high when the time comes.
“In moving to Rangers, he’s only doing what any manager in their right mind would do.
“One thing is for sure, there’s no way Del can stay at Aberdeen now.”
With McInnes clearly angling for a move Dons chairman Stewart Milne has to decide whether to lower his compensation price to Sevco levels or slap an injunction on his manager to prevent him from resigning to work with a rival.
In an interview with Sky Sports Boyd, clearly unaware of the Sevco accounts, has urged the Ibrox board to provide McInnes with a January transfer war-chest.
