McGregor risks Burley wrath over Boyd debate

Allan McGregor has risked the wrath of Scotland boss George Burley by questioning his treatment of Kris Boyd.

Rangers goalkeeper McGregor today leapt to the defence of Ibrox team-mate Boyd over his decision to quit international football while Burley remains in charge.

Striker Boyd came to the conclusion he was not rated by Burley after Saturday's goalless World Cup qualifier against Norway, in which he was an unused substitute.

Burley criticised the 25-year-old for turning his back on his country, claiming he needed to examine why he was not a regular in the Rangers first team before complaining about his lot with Scotland.

But in a move which could threaten his own place in Burley's squad, McGregor hit back today, saying: "Obviously, George Burley said about the first-team situation at Rangers.

"So then you've got an argument, why is he picking him in the Scotland squad?"
