[SCOTLAND] Rangers striker Kris Boyd, rumored to be headed to French club as a replacement for injured American Charlie Davies, scored five goals to became the Scottish Premier League's all-time leading scorer in Wednesday's 7-1 win over Dundee United.

Boyd's 160 goals put him two ahead of former Celtic striker Henrik Larsson.

Boys has made 283 appearances since making his SPL debut for Kilmarnock in May 2001 at the age of 17.

On Tuesday, he expressed interest in returning to the Scottish national team.

The all-time Scottish League scoring record is 410 goals established between 1922 and 1938 by Jimmy McGrory of Celtic and Clydebank.

Neither of Rangers' Americans, Maurice Edu nor DaMarcus Beasley, saw action in the win over Dundee United.
