Shiels credits Boyd effect

Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels said his side's comeback to draw 1-1 with Aberdeen was inspired by the signing of Kris Boyd.

Kenny Shiels: Boyd arrival provoked response

Boyd has re-joined Killie until the end of the season after leaving MLS side Portland Timbers.

And Shiels believes the effect of the SPL's all-time top scorer with 164 goals was felt at the club before he has even stepped on the pitch.

"The signing had an effect on today as (Paul) Heffernan and (Jamie) Langfield were outstanding," said Shiels.

"He's made a major contribution to this club and is a legend here - it's great to have a player like that here.

"Aberdeen have quality right through their team, I think after they enjoyed the better of the first 20 minutes and hit the post, that could have killed it off. But we dug in, made some chances and then got the goal we deserved.

"The first 20 minutes of the second half we were bossing it and then Aberdeen started hitting us on the break."

Shiels' opposite number, Craig Brown, was incensed by referee Euan Norris' decision not to award a penalty and send off Killie goalkeeper Cammy Bell when he brought down Niall McGinn 10 minutes from time.

However, Shiels offered a diplomatic answer when quizzed on the incident.

He said: "If I talk about referees and penalties then I could be penalised - I'm going through a self-discipline programme at the moment to try to stay away from the truth as much as I can."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
