It was another interesting weekend in the SPFL with plenty on and off-field incident to take a closer look at.

The Edinburgh derby kicked things off in fiery style on Friday as Neil Lennon caught one in the face and offered a fan out afterwards – making the drab stuff on the field even less interesting.

Then, as we won to keep the pressure up on Celtic and close in on Hearts, a former Gers man nicked the headlines on Sunday despite being on the losing side.

Kris Boyd hit his first goal of the season as Kilmarnock lost to Aberdeen and duly embarked on a celebration acknowledging those fans slating him for the timber he’s put on.

Today, though, Keith Jackson in the Daily Record’s Jury feature has claimed that Kris Boyd should be considered for Scotland’s next set of internationals:

The national side is short of strikers this coming international break but I can’t see that Boyd is the answer – as much as I like him.

He’s late in his career, isn’t scoring many, and there are other options surely to be looked at ahead of him.

It’s not a terrible idea but, in my opinion, the former Gers man has had his day on the international stage.
