Striker Kris Boyd remained tight-lipped over whether the draw with Motherwell was his final appearance for Rangers.

Boyd, on target for the Scottish champions in the 3-3 result at Ibrox, is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move to England.

"I'll wait until the end of the season before making a decision," he said.

"I've got a big couple of weeks ahead of me. There's a lot going on in my mind and we'll just wait to see what happens. For now, I'll enjoy this."

Boyd, who scored his 23rd league goal of the season in the draw at Ibrox, insisted he wanted to enjoy the club's title celebrations before deciding his future.

"When you see 50,000 people today; to grow up a Rangers fan, it means so much," the 26-year-old said.

It doesn't look like there is any reason why David Weir can't go on

"I'll enjoy tonight and we'll just see what happens. Hopefully, we'll get something out before I go on holiday."

A number of clubs from around Europe have been linked with the striker, including Birmingham City, Hertha Berlin and Galatasaray.

Rangers captain David Weir, who turns 40 on Monday, also faces an uncertain future at Ibrox with Rangers inhibited in contract negotiations by debts of around £30m.

"I'm just going to enjoy this, it's been a fantastic occasion," he told BBC Scotland.

"Just the way the club is at the minute, I don't think anyone can guarantee anything.


"You never know; if I was back here, I'd be a happy man.

"Picking up a trophy for Glasgow Rangers - it doesn't get much better than that."

Rangers manager Walter Smith believes Weir can continue playing.

"It looks as though he could," said Smith. "He has not missed a game this season. It doesn't look like there is any reason why he can't go on.

"He has been terrific for us. His play this season would indicate there is not going to be a drastic drop in any way shape or form for next season."
