Former New England Revolution coach Steve Nicol has high praise for both Kris Boyd and Dominic Kinnear. Speaking to the Scottish Sun here, Nicol said "I haven't spoken to Dominic about him. We're mates but we don't speak about players like that. You don't hear Sir Alex Ferguson on the phone to Harry Redknapp to discuss his targets! But if Dominic did phone me, I'd tell him that Kris would definitely score goals here."
