Birmingham City Planning Double SPL Raid?

Birmingham City are reportedly looking to bolster their attacking ranks with a double swoop for two of Scottish football’s leading lights. Celtic winger Aiden McGeady and Rangers striker Kris Boyd are the two names at the top of Alex McLeish’s list of summer targets.

McLeish missed out on the pair during January after seeing approaches for both players rejected by their respective clubs. However, Boyd is a free agent at the end of the season and is expected to join Birmingham as soon as his contract with Rangers ends in July.

McGeady may be a slightly less straight-forward acquisition though, as The Blues have already seen £8 and £10 million bids rejected by Celtic for the tricky Irishman.
