Shota Arveladze issues warning to Kris Boyd

Kris Boyd celebrates Rangers' title win

Shota Arveladze has warned Kris Boyd he will withdraw his offer of a £50,000 per week contract if the Scotland striker talks to a rival Turkish club.

Boyd is wanted by Arveladze's Kayserispor after rejecting a new contract with Rangers but has been linked with Bursaspor and Ankaragucu.

"I said that if he comes to speak to other teams then my offer is out," Arveladze told Rangers' website.

"I have to get a striker as soon as I can. I hope this can work out."

Former Rangers manager Alex McLeish appears to have dropped his interest in taking Boyd to Birmingham City.

And, although other English clubs could still be in the running to sign the 26-year-old, he is expected to travel to Turkey with his agent for talks.

I hope that he comes this week to see the place and finally agrees that he will come and play for us

"They have promised to come out to our place and are trying to find the best way to come," said former Rangers striker Arveladze.

"I just want to let Kris feel he is important to us and that he'll feel happy living here and scoring goals for our team.

"If he comes to see other teams then all the media will be watching, taking photos of him everywhere.

"It is like a gamble and if he chooses another team then I look silly. I said if you come then just visit me and make your mind up after that.

"I hope that he comes this week to see the place and finally agrees that he will come and play for us."
