Rangers: Kris Boyd tips Lewis Macleod to reach top

Rangers striker Kris Boyd has tipped young team-mate Lewis Macleod to make it big in football.

Macleod set up the forward capped 18 times for Scotland to score the only goal against Dumbarton on Saturday.

The 20-year-old midfielder also scored the winner against St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday.

"He's a fantastic talent and, as long as he keeps working hard at his game and learning, developing and listening, he can go far," said Boyd.

Macleod has come through the youth ranks to become a regular in Rangers' midfield and has been capped for Scotland Under-21s.

"He's a fantastic young kid with a bright future, but the most important thing for him is to keep doing the right things," added Boyd after his third goal in five games secured a 1-0 Scottish Cup win over the Sons.

"But, when you see him on a field, he's a joy to watch and you feel that every time he picks up the ball something is going to happen."
