KRIS BOYD has been issued a reminder by Sky over his conduct following his controversial comments about Celtic captain Callum McGregor.

The former Rangers striker last week questioned how the Scotland international played the 3-0 Old Firm match "without anyone testing the face mask" in his Scottish Sun column.

His initial comments read: “Look at Celtic. Callum McGregor played with a fractured cheekbone.

"The fact he managed to get through the 90 minutes without anyone testing out that face mask is another story, but his commitment to the team was tremendous.”

This sparked an angry response from Celtic as they revealed they were addressing comments made by the Scottish football pundit.

While the broadcasters back their man, Sky confirmed they have reminded Boyd about his 'use of language and context while telling a story'.

A Sky Spokesperson told Herald & Times Sport: “We are aware of Kris Boyd’s comments made in his column in the Scottish Sun, which he has since clarified and about which he has reached out to Celtic captain Callum McGregor privately.

"Even though these comments were not made on Sky Sports, Kris has been reminded about the language and context he uses in articulating and telling a story.“

As stated, ex-Kilmarnock attacker Boyd would go on to clarify his comments in a later piece in the wake of his column.

He insisted there was no suggestion he wanted a Rangers player to "intentionally try and hurt the midfielder".

In the updated response, he insisted any suggestion that was his intention in his column was "absolutely and unequivocally NOT the case".

Boyd wrote: "I think it’s right that I add some context and clarification to a reference I made about Callum McGregor.

"Some have taken that line to mean I wanted one of the Rangers players to intentionally try and hurt the midfielder.

"However, that is absolutely and unequivocally NOT the case.

"It was simply meant as a criticism of the Rangers players for their failure to get close to McGregor."

McGregor himself would also address the topic while speaking to the media at the beginng of this week. 

He revealed that Boyd had personally reached out to speak about what he wrote, as they cleared the air and moved on from the situation. 

The Celtic skipper said: "When you read it at first it doesn’t make great reading. Since then he has reached out, we’ve a chat about it and we’ll move on

“He had realised it’s a poor choice of words and we put it to bed”.
