REJUVENATED Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club next season, it was announced as he celebrated a major award on Monday.

Boyd. who scored six goals in a six-match unbeaten run, won the Ladbrokes Premiership Player of the Month Award for December, with boss Steve Clarke scooping the Manager of the Month accolade.

Boyd has scored 12 goals this season, having triggered the option of another year on his deal last May.

He admitted he had considered hanging up his boots until Clarke persuaded him otherwise following his appointment in October.

The veteran target man said: "I've had an excellent relationship with the club all along and said the last time I came back that would probably be to finish my career. I did feel I was coming to the end but from his (Steve's) first conversation with me he managed to convince me to stay."

Clarke said of the former Rangers striker: "You need good experience in your squad and I think Kris is a good example of that. His record's there for everyone to see. If you put the ball in the box, and it falls to Kris, nine times out of 10 it's going to end up in the back of the net."

Meanwhile Killie have rejected a £350,000 bid from Rangers for winger Jordan Jones.

Clarke said: "There wouldn't be any progress because the bid was far too low, so the club immediately turned it down."
