Rangers striker Kris Boyd insists he will stick with Rangers despite his frustration at being reduced to a fringe role in Walter Smith's team.

The 24-year-old has started just 19 matches this season, coming off the bench a further 12 times, but has scored a remarkable 20 goals to make him the club's leading scorer.

He was left on the bench throughout last week's Old Firm clash with Celtic, and there is no guarantee he will be involved against Dundee United at Tannadice on Sunday.

But Boyd told the Daily Record: "Look, the team has been winning so nobody can say the gaffer has got it wrong. I certainly am not saying that.

"But I don't think he or anybody else at the club would be happy if I wasn't frustrated. Of course I'm frustrated. I want to play.

"But although I'm not happy about not getting game that doesn't mean I want away."

He added: "I'm committed to Rangers and I want to be at Rangers for the rest of my life. I'm happy here."
