Ashen faced Kris Boyd watches his Champions League dream snatched by Malmo

nightmare week continued as he sat in the studio watching the action come in from Ibrox.

The first weekend of the season was a dream for the former Portland Timbers goal-ace as a home win at Ibrox was followed by Celtic’ defeat at Tynecastle. Unfortunately for Boyd that was as good as it got.

Last Tuesday he watched Malmo beat Steven Gerrard’ stars 2-1 but Steven Davis’ last gasp goal provided hope for the return leg.

Two days later Celtic won 4-2 away to Jablonec but some dodgy defending reassured Boydy that nothing had really changed but the weekend provided the first signs of concern.

At gloating Dundee United fans targeted the Sky Sports ace as Mister Gerrard’ side were spooked by 4,500 fans who didn’t fawn over their every move.

Sunday brought a 6-0 win for Celtic who leapfrogged their city rivals into top place with Furuhashi leading the scoring charts- ahead of Morelos, Roofe, Itten and Sakala.

Last night things became alarming. The £40m pay cheque from UEFA for reaching the Champions League was snatched away by Malmo, a name that has haunted him since 2011.

Antonio Colak and Jon Dahl Tomasson are the names that will haunt Boyd- even worse he faces a day of analysis standing outside Ibrox putting on a brave face knowing full well the consequences of the last time Malmo knocked out a team from Ibrox out of the Champions League.
