KRIS BOYD was banned from Dens park on Saturday after the Dundee club read the vitriol in his SunSport column towards their loan player Leigh Griffiths.
The Sky Sports employee went on an incredible rant, insisting all the bad things are happening to him now because he wound up Ibrox fans back when Celtic were picking up trophies for fun.
It was a quite incredible diatribe from a man who advocates for mental health.
A Dundee insider told RecordSport: ‘We informed Sky Sports of our decision on Saturday morning that Kris Boyd wouldn’t be getting any pre-match access from anyone at Dundee.
‘Some of the stuff he wrote about Leigh was just ridiculous and out of order. In fairness to Sky Sports, there were no issues and informed us that they would send in another reporter.’
Kris Boyd is anything but an impartial pundit, the former Ibrox player is bitter and can in no way call things down the middle while on a broadcast team.
We don’t advocate for stadium bans if the pundit is just putting forward a negative opinion of the team or a particular player.
But an all out attack on a player via column they’re getting paid for is something quite different. It was malicious and let’s be honest, quite pathetic from Boyd.
Dundee were within their rights to do what they did.
Leigh is currently on loan at Dundee from Celtic
